Very nice series of trails just a few minutes drive from the town of Orangeville. Beautiful forest with loads of mature maples, rolling terrain and numerous stream crossings. The path is in great condition, is well marked and there are several opportunities to adapt the hike to suit your needs.

There is a parking lot at the start/finish point and the first few hundred meters is along the side of the roadway. A good variety of trees including stands of cedar, red pine and lots of towering maples that would be spectacular in the fall. Birds were plentiful and we spotted a blue heron by one of the ponds near the north end of the Cam Snell loop.

A portion of the hike is on the well known Bruce Trail that winds from the Bruce Peninsula to the Niagara region. This particular portion, known officially as the Hockley Valley Provincial Nature Reserve, is a popular area with several access points and it is well worth exploring. One of the best I've seen in the area.
