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.

I did enjoy my day, but the trail is definitely more advance for my Canadian tire bike and my skills!! I think it's part if the bruce trail, so not actually sure if you can bike on it...But lots of trail around it which were pretty good!!

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.

Trails were covered in snow and my Siberian Husky - Indi - absolutely loved running around them.

It was a great trail. However it says that dogs can use it. At one section. there is a ladder and my dog does not climb ladders. She is 40 lbs and growing. I was very fortunate that there happened to be 2 young men that were at the ladder . They carried another dog up and then generously carried my dog up. If they were not there then my friend and I would have had to turn around and abort the hike. The cell phone service is very weak so it was difficult to follow the trail on my phone. I was lucky enough to be able to sing in and see for about 15 seconds to make sure we were on the right trails. This helped us along with two people we teamed up with to follow the trail without getting lost. I did enjoy it and will go back. I will only bring the dog if I bring someone to carry her up the ladder. It is a loop trail so we didn't have to go back down the ladder.

Great trail lots to see and explore

there are some challenging bits on this trail over boulders and uphill. there are some adorable little babbling brooks peppered along the way. unfortunately the markers for the trails aren't very well marked. just who's idea was it to put a white marker on a birch tree? we got nice and lost, Blair Witch project style. managed to find our car before nightfall, though. success.

I also got terribly turned around in this area. The blazers aren't as well maintained as i have seen on other sections of the bruce trail, and with all the sidetrails around, it's incredibly easy to get make a wrong turn and end up on the wrong side of a trail.

But the scenery and vegetation is amazing, and there are certain challenging areas over boulders i found very fun. Now that I have learned my lesson in terms of the trail mish-mash, I will definitely be returning.

This is a challenging route because there are so many rocks, but that's what makes it fun! Hiking from the Nassagaweya-Equesing Town Line trail and turning right onto the Bruce Trail and around the loop back to the Town Line is 10 kms. Great trail!
