A great trail for an afternoon hike in nature. Close to 5th line road so you can hear a bit of traffic. Check out the limestone if the weather is good and dry - - there’s a ladder that leads to the bottom of the “caves” of limestones that crack out of the earth. Watch for roots!

Not great walking. Map at Speyside is outdated. Gets confusing at Helena Road. Made a 6km loop using the Friendship Trail up to Al Shaw trail. Strange .

Lots to explore. It's a short run but allow yourself time to navigate the rock narrows. Definitely slippery over the rocks and lots of roots to trip on. Take your time and pick up your feet.

Fun short hike with rocky terrain at the hole in the wall section. old kiln and ammunitions storage makes it interesting. I like the stone arch where you cross over the river.

been on this trail many times. love it. wish it could be longer

The section of trail that runs alongside the quarry (Hilton Falls Side Trail) is currently closed so you cannot complete this loop at the moment.

Pretty Good trail! hoping to go again in the fall...

A surprisingly fun local hike with a bunch of crevices and escarpment features.

Great place for a quick hike! Please remind any yahoos you see to not climb over the fences to climb on the mill ruins. They are in danger of collapse due to irresponsible photo seekers.

Great trail and some shortcuts if you want to shorten it!!!!

I love going here. It’s close to Toronto.

This trail is at the Silver Creek Conservation Area. Free parking at Fallbrook Trail and side road 27. Perfect parking in between Silver Creek Conservation Area and Terra Cotta conversation Area. Trails here are great, couple of lakes all around and great dense forest with rocky terrain.
The 5km Bruce trail here is really great.

This short loop runs along 2 side trails and the main Bruce Trail. A couple of challenging bits, but very lovely.
Take both side trails and go down to the road and back around for 5 kms.

Nice quick hike. I could always hear traffic and trains, so not recommended if you're looking for deep nature. But, lots of different terrains and I reckon caught the hight of the trillium bloom.

Head right at your first turn to hit more downhills and so you'll be climbing up the ladder at the hole in the wall

I loved it. Walked around for at least 2 hours. Would definitely recommend looking at the map in the parking lot before setting off. Only a few trees down after the storm. And the little cabe were very neat. Some parts in involved climbing up a incline, which was easy just not fully acceptable. You have to check out the water and runes. Best part its free!!

Great trail with a mix of easy and moderate terrain. I entered from the free parking off 10131 Sixth Line Nassagaweya and if you check out my recording of our hike you will pass by two different fire pit locations. First pit wasn’t lit but one by the falls is almost always lit. If you take the Bruce trail portion is a rugged terrain with different elevations.

Great short hike within an hour of downtown Toronto. For the dog people, as pointed out by Gloria, the first of two ladders will be very challenging if not impossible for most dogs, even under perfect dry conditions. This is especially true of trying to go _down_ the ladders, so I highly recommend doing this loop in the counter-clockwise direction so you approach the ladders from the bottom. That being said, you have at least two other options. One is to fully skip this section by using the road (Fifth) to connect between the two closest access points. Unfortunately that would mean missing one of the most interesting sections of the hike though, so I would recommend at least approaching and evaluating. I was able to lift up my 100lb dog to roughly shoulder height in a section 20 steps(?) to the right of the ladder approach, very obvious place if you look around for 2 min, then there’s a narrow section that will bring you to the *2nd* ladder which is more like steps and should be easy for most dogs, where you will continue on the main trail. All in all, we’re talking about a 50 step detour with a single class 2 scramble move, but the surrounding terrain could be dicey if you don’t have experience and an under control dog. All in all, fun little hike, but just pay close attention to those details if with pooch.

Omg that was so fun! We went up this steep little hill into this cave like thing where we had to go up steps. It was fun and challenging! The terrain was so perfect too. Wide enough for 2 ppl. It had its muddy areas but then again it’s end of March still!

This trail is temporarily closed as of Mach 21, 2018. Check the Bruce Trail's website for most recent info.

Love all the trails in the silvercreek area. They are some of the best! They are Rocky and hilly but that's what makes them great.

Lovely walk, with nice mixed terrain. Ladders and crevices are neat, and some historical building remains. Lots of birds. We went on a beautiful Sunday morning at 9am and it was peaceful and quiet, but getting busy by about 11:15.

Enjoyed this trail a lot. Lots of rocks to climb over, so it a quite challenging but keeps it exciting and fun. Saw lots of Trillium, a Garter snake or two, and many many insects.

Very rocky terrain, with some steep hills to climb. Definitely would suggest good foot wear and go on a day when the ground will be dry and solid. Also, make sure you pay attention to the blazers as there are some sudden turns and places where the trail veers off into two which can be confusing.
