Forks of the Credit

About the Trail

Moderate | Signed | Sloping Terrain | Rocky with Roots

Revel in the beauty of nature at Forks of the Credit! At Forks of the Credit Provincial Park you can enjoy the scenic views of the waterfall at the cataract, hike through the old hydro station ruins at the top of the falls and see a diversity of wildlife from rare meadow-dwelling birds to green frogs.

From the parking area, head past the large trailhead sign and turn right at the first path. Follow this path down the hill, between two ponds, and up another hill. You will soon reach the white blazes (trail markers) of the main Bruce Trail. Turn right and follow the blazes through the fields and down across the river to the hydroelectric mill ruins and waterfall at the Cataract. From the waterfall, continue along the main trail, following the river valley, until you reach a blue-blazed side trail that turns left off the main trail. Follow the trail back up to the top of the hill to rejoin the white blazed main trail. From here, retrace your steps back to your car.
