Nice hike, can be made much longer if you add in some of the Bruce Trail side trails. Beautiful scenery and pretty level ground throughout. Would rate this ‘easy’ for any type of regular hiker. Dogs loved it and there is parking on site! $6.75 entrance fee.

Falls are worth the trip. Bruce trail sections are fun.

Love this place! Been here twice now and hiked over 10km each time. If you get on the bike trail it is 7km long and narrow but great if you want to get off the main paths. Nice little water fall in the middle of the park. Ample parking and washrooms.

We hiked Hilton Falls trail last week, just after the park opened mid week, not allot of people there so it was nice and peaceful, we went up Hilton Falls trail and came down Red Oak trail, it was a great trail to hike, bit of a steep grade at first but soon leveled out. Unfortunately the falls were bone dry at this time, so it was a little disappointing end to a great hike. We will try again in the spring when we know there will be water flowing

Cool waterfalls and beautiful, not a moderate hike - more of a walk!

The Halton Regional Forest trails are easy - very few elevation changes and flat gravel. The conservation area trails are accessible through the Regional Forest Britton Tract trailhead if you don't want to pay for parking at the conservation area. There are some single track side trails that are more moderate or hard as well.

There's a middle section in this figure 8 pattern trail where you go on the Bruce trail. Pretty rocky but not too hard. Maybe not best for beginners.

Took the extra loop around. Total 4 hour hike. Always a favourite of my family more than 25 years

Pros: Good entry level trail system, clear path with little obstructions.

Cons: lineup to get In the parking lot on the weekend and paid entry

clean, clear trails.

Not exact route I took, but close enough. Most major trails are gravel roads, but if you want to go through scenic route with winding trails and rock-jumping paths, take Bruce Trail route.
Has a few campfire sites along the route that is maintained (and apparently fired-up for your convenience) by park staff, where you can catch a breath and picnic.Tables are included.
Come early, if you don't want to park on the side of the road, despite large parking lot.

Amazing view

This was a great trail win a beautiful waterfall at its apex. I would like to return and try the more challenging route (main one is fairly easy).

This was a great hike. I went with a friend (I normally hike alone), and we had a blast! It's challenging enough and of course scenic with the waterfall and there's great paths off the main trail. Lots of mosquitos but there's not too much you can do about that! I love the campfire by the water too, I wish I had known about it! I would have brought a hot dog or marshmallows! I would definitely recommend this trail :)
