It offers mixed maple forests, fantastic vistas, old growth cedar stands and tremendous caves and cliffs.

This trail is an ideal blend of forest and fields, hills and valleys and all challenges are rewarded with incredible views seen from the most beautiful lookout points imaginable.

FORKS OF THE CREDIT
This trail loops through the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park. It is notable because it is here that the cliffs and crevasses of the rugged Niagara Escarpment meet the rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine. The trail includes a visit to the Credit Falls, where the credit river plunges over a rocky ledge near the village of Cataract. The area's claim to fame was, and still is, the springs of clear water that flows on the hillsides. Trails in the Forks of the Credit Park are over hills and old farmer's fields, through hardwood and cedar forests, and along the top of steep bluffs.
This hike is of a moderate to difficult level as it has more hills and steeper grade.
Location: Caledon region (NW of Toronto)
