  *** Scenic Fall Hike: FORKS OF THE CREDIT Park ***

Let's enjoy another scenic hike in the company of other outdoor enthusiasts from the Toronto area!

The Forks of the Credit Provincial Park is an excellent area for hiking although sometimes overcrowded on pleasant weekends and during the fall colour season. Still few people get very far into the park and soon you will be almost alone. The Kettle Lake was created by glaciation that has no inflow or outflow. The lake, carved out of a pocket in the rock by glaciers, gets its fill by meltwater and later rainwater to form a small self-contained lake.

The park features the mighty Credit River, as it narrows and rushes through a deep gorge, plunging over a falls. Geological features that were deposited or carved out by retreating glaciers, such as kame hills and kettle lakes, surround the river. The park also includes some of the upland, rolling pasture land that is typical of much of southern Ontario.

Hiking and picnicking are favourite activities here. Open year-round, the park is popular in winter for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Limited facilities include a parking lot, picnic tables, viewing platforms, toilets and marked trails to hike. Length: 14 Km.
