FORKS OF THE CREDIT RIVER HIKE

Timing:

June 13/15 (Saturday) at 10:00 am. (2 – 2.5hrs)

Well-behaved dogs on leash are most welcome.

Description:

(Distance = 8 km)

You are invited to explore lovely Forks of the Credit Provincial Park. The 8 km loop hike begins where the West Credit and Credit Rivers join (“The Forks”), and continues along Dominion Street through the historic hamlet of Brimstone. The trail wanders through the valley and along the river to ruins of the old Hydro Station. After crossing the river twice, our hike will return on the Bruce Trail taking the Dorothy Medhurst Side Trail back to Brimstone and soon our starting point. (See Map 15 of the Bruce Trail Guide)
