Description

Difficulty: Easy

The fifth and final installment of my Credit Valley hikes for this year will pick up 2 km north of Credit Meadows Park at Meadowvale Conservation Area and go north along the Credit River into Brampton and the old village of Churchville where we will walk a loop on pleasant country roads stopping for lunch at Francis Bransby Wood north of Steeles Avenue before returning to Meadowvale Conservation Area. The hike provides exceptional views of the Credit River and its floodplain and is a fitting conclusion to this series.

Meet at:

Islington Subway Stn, MiWay bus 26, Platform D for 9:05 am departure.

Going directly by car, follow Mavis Road north of HWY 401, turn left onto Crawford Mill Ave., right onto Gooderham Estate Blvd., and left onto Old Derry Road for 1.2 km. At 1255 Old Derry Road turn into the laneway for Credit Valley Conservation and drive for 260 meters to Parking Lot. Our hike will begin from this parking lot at 10:30. Please arrive 10 minutes early. If you are taking this option please let me know by text or email so I am not looking for you at Islington Stn.
