About the Trail
Diversity is the word at Terra Cotta: of landscapes, wildlife and activities, whether hiking through spring trilliums or enjoying the gorgeous colours of autumn. Terra Cotta contains the headwaters of the Credit River watershed, the source of drinking water for more than 750,000 people. The Credit begins in Orangeville and flows through the Greenbelt, draining into Lake Ontario in Mississauga. The hike winds along the cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment and past a series of natural and human-made wetlands restored in the 1990s.
