Belfountain Conservation Area
Location - 10 Credit Street, Belfountain L7K 0E5
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.
Over the years, Belfountain has become a Mecca for photographers and others who enjoy the spectacular colours of the Niagara Escarpment in autumn. Belfountain’s beauty is often used to photograph weddings, or as a backdrop for television or magazine features.
