Come out and celebrate Bruce Trail Day in Mississauga with a beautiful walk high above the Credit River on UTM trails followed by an end to end of the attractive Sawmill Valley Trail. The hike will originate and finish at Erindale Park with a loop on each end. The Credit River Valley is a significant feature of the Bruce Trail and the Credit Valley Footpath an unfinished side trail that once completed all the way to Port Credit will be a way to access the Bruce Trail from the Lake Ontario waterfront. The river valley was a major trading route for native peoples as well as home and hunting grounds for the Mississaugas of the Credit.
The terrain is relatively easy without any major hills. We will be walking on a variety of dirt, packed gravel, and paved paths with some grass and boardwalks. Public washrooms available at Erindale Park only, but nature stops will be offered during the hike.
We at the Toronto Bruce Trail Club value and welcome everyone who wants to join our hikes. We are an inclusive organization and we love diversity of participants at all our events. Positive vibes and good feelings live here.
