Fall colours at Belfountain Conservation Area

Belfountain open until October 27!

There has been years when Belfountain Conservation Area closed right after Thanksgiving long weekend. In 2013, it will remain open until October 27 (then closing for the winter). Belfountain's trail is not long but from it you can continue into the Bruce Trail.

Wondering what lies beyond Belfountain Conservation Area's frontier? 
Here are some photos taken two years ago when we walked beyond the conservation to admire more fall colours. Enjoy!

Following the trail past the the grotto (Yellowstone Cave).
The gang is ready to walk into the Bruce Trail (signs in the trail indicated
we were leaving Belfountain Conservation Area).

We know we're on the Bruce Trail because we can see the blue markers along the trail.

We eventually get closer to the river, by the little Forks of the Credit Road.
We turned right on the road, and get a good view of the river.

We saw a vintage train ride over the road, part of the Credit Valley Explorer
scenic rail tours
Someone was selling honey in front of their house just before the bridge.

When I checked on Oct. 14, Credit Valley Explorer still had seats in their vintage train
for the Saturday October 26 tour. The rest was sold out.

We returned to the Bruce Trail by the river.
It's approx. 1.5 km to the small bridge inside Belfountain Conservation Area.

This little bridge leads to the other part of Belfountain trail
returning to the suspended brigde.
You access the trail by climbing up the stairs
which you'll be able to see once you've crossed the little bridge.
This is a fun little trail going up through roots and rocks.
Too challenging for people with limited mobility.

It leads to a boardwalk from which you'll be able
to access the suspended bridge.
On the other side of the bridge, you'll reach the Yellowstone Cave.
