About the Route
Load up on a variety of culinary delights at Spirit Tree Estate Cidery before pedaling on to view the red rutted earth of the Cheltenham Badlands, two side stops worth the extra kilometre. Passing through horse country and green pastures, enjoy a gentle ride up to the hamlet of Belfountain, a mecca for day trippers with lots of food options, plus picnicking and nature trails at the conservation area. The next stretch is very scenic but requires caution. Pull over at the scenic viewpoint while enjoying the Escarpment descent. Continuing along the Forks of the Credit Road, this popular route sees a lot of touring vehicle traffic, especially in the Fall. Crossing the river, cycle up the narrow road past a hidden country cottage-like community to hike or bike the rugged trail network in Forks of the Credit Provincial Park. Turn off Forks of the Credit Road and onto the quieter unpaved McLaren Road to ride back under the forested Escarpment cliffs, crossing rivers and streams all the way into the quaint village of Inglewood and rejoining the Caledon Trailway.
