on Black Creek Side Trail

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.

lots to see very easy for the whole family

on Maple Ridge Loop

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!!

Nice open areas to get a tan and woods

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!

A fair amount of timber cuttings throughout several areas along this trail. Actually opens up trail nicely.

Loved this trail! Slippery on the rocks in the winter

Lots of parking at Scotsdale Farm. Easy 2 hr hike with some ups, downs and road crossings. Can be busy.

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.

Easy lightly trafficked trail, pretty flat the whole way although there are some rocky spots deep in the forest (not great footing for people or dogs!) HEAVY mosquitos in late May and some spots of the trail were quite muddy. Overall a nice hike, would do it again.

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.

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.

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!

The loop from Nassagawya-Esquesing Town Line turning right onto the main Bruce Trail and looping around and back to the Town Line is 10 kms. It's a very challenging trail, with lots of rocks and roots, which makes it fun! Hikes this in May and saw lots of Trillium, a small bit of Columbine, White Violets, Jack-in-the-Pulpits, and a few other flowers.
