This is a great little gem well worth the stop at. So many unique and interesting birdhouses. It was closed in the winter so only seasonally. I think it would make a great destination on the Amazing Race locate certain birdhouses that you saw in the County

We spent an hour walking in the woods of Macaulay Mountain and enjoyed the nature. While we did see some markers with red or green paint, they are elusive and somewhat faded. There is a map at the beginning of the route, but no indication of distances. However, with a GPS , and keeping the distant sound of the road... More

I went to the Macaulay Mountain Conservation area. I didn't particular care for the location. The bird houses were replicas of areas in and around the county. It was neat but not something I would return to see. Just not my cup of tea.

The Bird Houses are "Out of this World". The work that has been put in them is awesome. Just past the Bird House park there is a GREAT walking trail up the Mountain. A must to do if you are up to it!

We drove past the park with no time to stop and returned to visit the next day because we were intrigued. Tge collection of unique bird houses is worth the visit to the conversation area.

The Macaulay Mountain Conservation Area had lots of hiking trails! There was a number of trails to choose from and a variety of levels as well. It would be nice to have more signs at the front of the trails so you know which trail you are going on. The birdhouses were cool, but in need of updates.

I love wandering around the trails of Macauley Mountain. I have been there several times, and each visit brings me to a new area I've never explored before. It's wonderful to have such an escape right around the corner in Prince Edward County. P.S. Bring bug repellent.

Macaulay Mountain offer great hiking trails through the forest and along the top of the bluff. There's a nice little platform for enjoying a picnic and the view.

A terrific network of trails that goes through a nicely varied terrain. Some of the trails are quite twisty: some are made for mountain bikes and not really hiking trails but it doesn't matter. The park is big enough that it feels like you can get lost... but you can't really, although it can feel like it on the twisty... More
