Headwaters Trails Listing

Get the Trail MapHCIA has now compiled information about more than 20 Trails in Headwaters and uploaded this info — and maps onto our website.  Having this information, compiled in a central location, has been something that has been frequently requested by residents and visitors alike. Funding from the Ontario Government’s Healthy Communities Fund has helped to make this all possible.

On each trail page, you’ll also find a place to share comments so please take a few minutes to let us know what you think or share ideas for how we can make this listing even better!

  1. Hi, Thought I’d point out a missing link in this excellent list of trails in the Headwaters Region. The Grand Valley Trail, which starts in the village of Alton, is connected to the main Bruce Trail via the Alton Side Trail ( an official part of the Bruce trail system). The Alton Side trail begins in the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park and runs along the upper Credit River through the environmental reserve known as the Grange, Alton Village and the Alton Mill property and up to the “Pinnacle”, which is the terminus of the Grand Valley trail. As it’s name suggests, the Pinnacle is the highest point of land in the area, affording spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

    • Hi Jordan! Yes, thanks for your input. We worked hard with the funds available to list as many local trails as we could. We will add The Grand trail to a list of future additions (along with other side-trails etc) that are on our Version 2.0 list!

  2. If you want to get out hiking but would like some suggestions about where to go for the best day hikes in Caledon, then pick up a copy of my new guide Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes. It includes detailed instructions about 37 different loop routes all in Caledon except for 2 Hockley Valley loops that I “borrowed.” The book is 192 pages long, is full of colour photos, great maps and info and where to have lunch or a latte. I’ve also included tidbits about Caledon’s natural and cultural history.
    It retails for $24.95 + 5% tax.
    You can pick it up at locations throughout headwaters. A list of locations selling Caledon Hikes is available at nicolaross.ca. You can also buy it on line at nicolaross.ca.
    Hope you like it.

  3. The Oak Ridges Moraine Trail in Caledon has undergone a recent major reroute. From the Palgrave Forest, our main trail now follows the former Bruce Trail sidetrail to Glen Haffy. Our new western Trailhead, where we meet the Bruce Trail, is 700 m south of Coolihans Rd. This exciting new route is almost entirely on Toronto Region Conservation Authority properties linked by short road sections. You are welcome to join any of our hikes in the area. Check the website for times and locations and speeds. The ORTA guidebook is found in many bookstores and outdoor equipment locations.
