I found this trail pretty boring. It’s not very scenic and it reminds me of a place teenagers would go to get stoned. I was fairly disappointed. It’s not lush and green with a canopy of trees, if that is what you are looking for. It’s a wide path more than a nature walk.

nice easy casual family walk along the creek.

Love that trail !

Excellent for riding .

really pretty, very short trail and was really easy to complete.

Awesome trail. Easy to follow, nice wide path. Not obvious where it starts as it’s not marked but if you follow the map provided here you should locate it. Trail is wooded and follows the creek right to the lake.

Love this trail! Well maintained with challenging hills. Watch for cyclists- hard to see them coming around some of the corners.

Entry points onto the trail were not clearly marked. We couldn’t find access along Constance so we drove further and ended up parking and walking in off Lakeshore Road and Armiger Lane but had to ask for directions to get there. The path is beautiful - flat and wide - with lots of wildlife (woodpeckers, cardinals, chipmunks and squirrels). It runs along a shallow section of Sixteen Mile Creek. We went mid-day, mid-week and didn’t see anyone else on the trail. Mix of dirt path and paved trails. Bring bug spray!

It was a nice low impact easy trail. The route on the app was slightly confusing and next time I would just do the trails as outlined by the parks actual map itself.
Saw wildlife and ultimately had a good time. The leash free dog path was the best part!

Park costs 17.50 to park for the day.

This route uses the parks interior service road -- so while there is reduced traffic - users need to be aware of park vehicles.

Pets need to be leashed at all times while on this route.

Great route and surface for runners. More like 5 km loop.

This route is actually the Trillium Trail.

Starting and ending from parking lot F in Bronte Creek Provincial Park.

About a 2 km route.

Lovely in the spring for wildflowers! Trilliums, Lilly's, Mayapples and more.

All visitors are required to obtain a valid park permit... Day pass or seasonal vehicle. Dog must be leashed at all times on this trail.

There is a leash free area as you travel to parking lot F.

More information www.ontarioparks.com

This route should better be described as ravine to 1/2 Moon Valley trail. As the map actually does not mark the Trillium Trail.
This route travels the top ridge of the bronte creek ravine and then descend into it and along side the creek.
Mixed hardwood, wildflowers, birds and mammals. Cross country ski in the winter.

Dog friendly as long as they are leashed.

Short, but nice wooded area. Young trees. Area was previously saved by conservation group.

Alway take my dog here! It's great that it's leash-free!

Beautiful park with a few nice trails. When it's quiet it's possible to see deer in the park. There is a large outdoor skating rink in the winter and a small farm for kids and animal lovers to explore. You can hear the highway from the forest on parts of the trails.

Shorter trail than I anticipated, easy walk. Very shaded and cool.

Not bad for a casual stroll.

This park features several short hiking trails. You should note that there's tons of parking - one would suspect that on a Saturday afternoon in July the trails might end up looking more like a downtown street than a nature walk. This park is basically in Oakville and must be a real treasure for residence. There is loud road noise throughout the trails but it's quite lovely and features a working far with lots of opportunity for contact. This would be a great outing for those with little children.

It should be noted that day use for one vehicle and it's occupants is $17

The logging trail passes a historic farm house and working farm, skirts a large rolling field planted with something that might have been soy beans and into the woods. It doesn't loop and presents no real challenges. We did three trails in Bronte Creek Park today, the road noise from the QEW is pervasive throughout the trails but the sights are lovely.

Although Bronte Creek Provincial Park is definitely worth a look especially if you have small children, this trail has nothing to recommend it. It's short, not particularly interesting, and the noise from the QEW is loud and constant.

Beautiful wooded area for a hot summer day. Shaded path with many trails you can take. Must look great in the fall.

It's was good fun but it needs more technical single track trails
