Once you get past the families picnicking and waterfall Instagrammers, you hit a lovely technical trail. Lots of shade, single file with some nice rocks and tree trunks to navigate.
We parked on thw shoulder approx. 7-mins walk away and just paid admission fees: $6.00 per person.

The area with the falls and fountain is beautiful, and worth seeing, The information in the description of this trail above, isn't exactly accurate. The Belfountain trail is only about 1.5km lont, it does split off onto part of the Bruce Trail. The rating of Easy. isn't accurate either, they have signs up saying challenging. We went after a night of rain and the trail is full of rocks and roots which were slippery. It is also very steep in areas, even to the point where they put stairs and boardwalks in certain spots. Its a nice area but the trail is defiantly not suitable for people with mobility issues

Beautiful trail, rolling hills, huge pond with frogs and at the end of the trail we did a beautiful waterfall. I would say it was a difficult hike about 2.5 hours to the falls and back. Well worth it!

To clarify a couple things ...

Belfountain is not a 5km trail. It’s more like 1km. It’s easy and includes a dam/waterfall, suspension bridge, and river edge access. Mostly technical trail walking with some paths. Very nice. This first part was a bit busy. Parking is $10 but we parked on shoulder near general store and walked the two minutes to park. $6 entry.

For more technical hiking, continue on to Trimble Side Trail. It’s “single track” style. Way less busy and gets more into the forest.

I would mark this trail as easy. Trail head is easily accessible with a big paid-parking lot. 1st half of the trail is fairly busy, rolling meadows, with lots of weekend-warriors. Once you get past the beginning half the crowds die down a bit and it's easy wooded trails with shady cover. Lots of opportunity to extend the hike with side trails. Keep an eye on where you're going as you may not notice and end up on a side-trail.

Small beach at the end, probably wouldn't swim in there..

Some beautiful trails and a nice waterfall to stop at for lunch, or spend the day by the lake.

The Dominion Trail leading to the falls was a nice hike. The falls are blocked off now, sadly. Trails need better markers for North, south, etc. Take a compass! I trekked almost the entire area as the north west side of the Bruce trail was also closed off. Enjoyed my day despite the rain!

Good place in the area with little touch of nature.

Amazing views, beautiful waterfalls, lots of inclines and declines. For a longer hike connect to the Bruce Trail.

it's a lovely trail. lots of intersecting trails so it's important to pay attention to where you are going. there's a lot of flat ground but the hike to the falls is steep and quite the workout. it gets slippery in wet weather. The falls are closed off and the trail doesn't loop around so it's a one way walk to the falls and back. it's beautiful and scenic with access to the river at various points. it's one of my favourite places to hike.

Great trails and well maintained, very hilly so you should be in good shape to complete the hike.

A great trail system, vert enjoyable.
Bruce Trail certainly an easy trail, Dominion has several steep inclines, water poles and steps. 20 seconds after reading the ‘no mountain biking’ sign, a guy went by on one. Very easy loop system to contend with, relatively quiet, with some out enjoying a hike, and then the odd walker going by in their Levi’s and fashion trainers. The coordinates when you click ‘Directions’ on this app takes you to the entrance on Dominion Street, which requires you to park on the main street and then walk across the bridge and onto Dominion, to the beginning of the trail.

lots of fun

It's a pretty good trail. Not super difficult, but it could be marked a bit better. There are lots of intersections which gets a little confusing.

Awesome single track mountain biking trails for a really good price

Nice trail for hiking, seems to be popular among mountain bikers as well. The hiking loop isn’t always well indicated so hang on to your map.

really nice trail, I recommend going in the fall!!

Trails are good, lots off up and down hill. A little too short for me, had to do the 3 trails like 3 times. Signs could be better also.

Beautiful place to hike...

Good trail, more of a biking trail, lots of different varieties of mushrooms.

Good for beginners...

it is cool but the loop is not 5.1 km. there is a $10 parking fee plus $5 admission. but it is worth it, of course you can park on the street next to general store and leg it if you want save $10. but nice and kid friendly

Will try it soon.

A little too busy for me at 10:20 am and very steep up hills. Parking is very limited as well, and no benches by the parking to eat lunch.

Beautiful scenery, and easily accessible from the Bruce Trail.

Interesting trail and an enjoyable hike.

Some things worth noting:

The main user access point is via the access road at the NE corner. There's absolutely no parking at the indicated point on the map.

There's a fair amount of poison ivy along the trail margins. Make sure you can recognize it before setting out.

There's a break in the trail at the NW corner, at the falls. It looks like the trail got washed out. There are fences to stop people going past this point although the fences are easily negotiated and the trail's really not too bad if you're careful.
