Belfountain Falls ,Ontario, Canada


Address -: Belfountain Falls ,10 Credit Street ,Belfountain, Caledon, Ontario, Canada

Belfountain is a picturesque Hamlet on the Forks of the Credit Road. The Road itself is scenic and fun to drive but once arriving in Belfountain you'll discover a beautiful conservation area with historic sites, trails, and a swing bridge.
The Belfountain Conservation Area covers nearly 20 acres (8 hectares) and was once owned by inventor Charles Mack. Here, in the early 1900’s he created his version of a mini Niagara Falls and Yellowstone Cave. He also built the suspension bridge that crosses the river and the picturesque fountain, with its bell on top to honour the village of Belfountain.
There is plenty to see and do at Belfountain. A nature trail spans the river gorge using a suspension bridge and then winds along the steep sides of the Escarpment requiring steady feet and approximately 30 minutes to walk. A short distance downstream is the juncture of the West and main Credit Rivers, the scenic “Forks of the Credit” area. These can be reached by a rugged hike down into the valley along the Trimble Trail that will take you out of the Conservation Area. The Trimble Trail is not a loop and you will have to retrace your steps to return to the Conservation Area.
