The Badlands are a rare and unusual sight in Ontario's geology. Iron oxide in the Queenston Shale is what gives this area its distinctive terra cotta colour. Light bands occur where the circulating ground water has transformed the iron oxide from red to green.

My first visit to this site was over 35 years ago. Since then the area has seen an increase in urbanization. The dirt road leading to the Badlands has been replaced with asphalt. New housing developments have sprung up around it.

Once only known to locals the Badlands have become almost a tourist attraction. Every year thousands visit this site including bus loads of school children. Despite all this the Badlands remain much as I remember it. Currently it is under the care of the Bruce Trail Association.
