Falconer Heights Treestand

This hilly treestand is a unique natural feature, with depressions 5-6m deep and steep slopes, formed thousands of years ago by receding glaciers. The glaciers left behind large chunks of ice which eventually melted, leaving large depressions in the landscape. The treestand is adjacent to a playground and is enjoyed by the surrounding community.
