Rocky trail path so excercise caution during winter and trecherous condition's, lots of variance in terrain, mature trees, interesting rock and steep cliff formations, breath taking Sherman Falls, spectacular late fall frozen icelcles, Tiffany Falls similar but more visable natural stone stair case as water flows. Definitely an intermediate hike worth visiting all year round.

be prepared to pay for parking...

Nice trail - TONS of side trails so this could be made much much longer. The trail was moderately busy (we saw a few cyclists, other hikers and 3 groups of horseback riders), mind you we started our hike at 10am on a mild Saturday. Trail is well maintained and easy to navigate, would rate this trail easy, for any normal hiker.

Very hilly, but note, a good portion 2+ km of this trail is ROAD, the middle section of the trail is broken up - the trail stop at Safari Road and then restarts at 8th Concession. We turned back as we had dogs and didn’t want to walk on the road with them, but may be nice if you start at the north end and walk south (towards 8th Concession). Don’t think we would do this again, between 6th Concession and Safari Road it is very hilly.

great trail, super wide and well maintained. I love going for runs along here and every km is marked. I often see deer and it connects to the Dundas Valley Conservation area at about km 5 and theres a whole other network of trails.

Great trail along the river bank. Bruce Trail started off with a waterfall, then straight down hill. Lots of up and down hills and great views. Small parking lot at Mill Street South and Waterdown Rd. No fee.

It is rated moderate but it is as easy as it gets.

My dog and I absolutely loved this trail. It was perfect, it had a few hills, but nothing we couldn’t handle. I also loved the many look out points and all the information about the different animals and trees along the trail. We actually got the chance to see a few deer. We will be coming back for sure.

Good size waterfall! Apparently spring is the prime time to go for water flow, however fall allowed us to walk through it as it was gentle enough. Decent access to the falls, still accessible to explore, not fenced off like some. Good set of trails attached to this waterfall. (Sometimes there’s not much to do other than be directly at the falls). Interesting section of the Bruce for a city stretch, nice that it has loop options.

Muddy terrain with lots of hills. Amazing views of the waterfall and the trail follows the river for a little while! I really liked the challenge and the calming feeling of the area.
