Located in Caledon, just outside Brampton, the Cheltenham Badlands are simply stunning, and a must-see for anyone visiting Brampton. The badlands were formed by accidental soil erosion caused by farming practices in the 1930s.
The badlands exposed Queenston Shale, which has a beautiful red and grey colour, with beautiful streaks of green. The Cheltenham Badlands are a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and are part of the Niagara Escarpment.

Geocaching is the world’s biggest recreational “treasure hunt,” Which involves searching for hidden items via GPS coordinates that are posted online. There are thousands of geocaches all around the world, and Brampton has its very own. First, sign up for a free Geocaching account, download the Geocaching Android or iPhone app, select one “geocache,” and use the app to navigate to its location. Once you locate the geocache, date and sign the logbook and then re-hide the geocache in the same place you found it. Geocaching is available year round.
