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.

Love the gentle terrain, nice rocky streams, tall trees and friendly horse riders. Can be a a bit busy with mountain bike riders on weekends. Nice highlight is the trail center, lots of interesting wild life facts, amazing old style steam train. Overall a nice trail.

There is very little hiking on this trail. You have to pay for parking and a shuttle to get to the falls.
