In the Dufferin Hi-Land section, parts of the Bruce Trail follow the line of Hurontario Street, which was the main road into the area in pioneer days and linked Lake Ontario with Georgian Bay.  Along the Trail, there are long views to the east and pleasant walks through mature, mixed hardwood forests.

It passes through such areas of natural beauty as the Mono Cliffs Provincial Park, the Boyne Valley Provincial Park and the Pine River Fishing Area.
