An absolutely beautiful trail that starts at the waterfall. Easy to maneuver around the rocks, fallen trees and Staggered terrain. Perfect for the nature enthusiast like myself.

Great trail for getting little ones interested in hiking. Lots of roots and rocks to negotiate around. Waterfall views and river sound is awesome. Trees have fallen and block the path in a few spots. Girls had a blast and both fell asleep in the truck on the way home. Truly impressed to all those who put the time in to make the trail what is. Thank you.

Entrance from mill st is very steep, many stairs. After you get past the descend it's great! Try it out.

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.

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.

A tough start (steep stairs and inclines) gives way to a moderate hike. Worth the effort due to the beautiful scenery. Parking near the entrance on Mill St is limited so I suggest using parking at the Dundas St intersection then walking up.
