Once you get past the families picnicking and waterfall Instagrammers, you hit a lovely technical trail. Lots of shade, single file with some nice rocks and tree trunks to navigate.
We parked on thw shoulder approx. 7-mins walk away and just paid admission fees: $6.00 per person.

The area with the falls and fountain is beautiful, and worth seeing, The information in the description of this trail above, isn't exactly accurate. The Belfountain trail is only about 1.5km lont, it does split off onto part of the Bruce Trail. The rating of Easy. isn't accurate either, they have signs up saying challenging. We went after a night of rain and the trail is full of rocks and roots which were slippery. It is also very steep in areas, even to the point where they put stairs and boardwalks in certain spots. Its a nice area but the trail is defiantly not suitable for people with mobility issues

To clarify a couple things ...

Belfountain is not a 5km trail. It’s more like 1km. It’s easy and includes a dam/waterfall, suspension bridge, and river edge access. Mostly technical trail walking with some paths. Very nice. This first part was a bit busy. Parking is $10 but we parked on shoulder near general store and walked the two minutes to park. $6 entry.

For more technical hiking, continue on to Trimble Side Trail. It’s “single track” style. Way less busy and gets more into the forest.

Amazing views, beautiful waterfalls, lots of inclines and declines. For a longer hike connect to the Bruce Trail.

Good for beginners...

it is cool but the loop is not 5.1 km. there is a $10 parking fee plus $5 admission. but it is worth it, of course you can park on the street next to general store and leg it if you want save $10. but nice and kid friendly

Very over crowded, some parts seemed like playing 'follow the leader' rather than hiking a trail. For the price of parking plus admission on the weekend, if you can get parking in the park otherwise you need to park in town and risk getting ticketed, won't be going back on a weekend again.

Beautiful trail, perfect for dog walking. Was a bit crowded in the beginning but becomes less populated as you continue hiking. Definitely visiting again :)

Bathroom amenities are spotless.

Wonderful views and water features are worth the drive. Great little community and shops surrounding the trail added bonus.

Lost all of its charm. Maybe the fall will help it recover.

It was a really nice trail but there is a fee to get in. It is short which is good for people who need to have frequent restroom breaks. There is a washroom and picnic area at the start. You need good balance for some parts. Elderly and pregnant people may have a hard time keeping their footing at certain points, especially if it is wet or getting dark. There are big hills on the side to fall down if you lose your footing. You walk in the forest, so you don't need to worry about getting a sunburn. There are never very many other people there. The scenery is beautiful.
