“Great for hikes, not so much picnics”

Forks of the Credit Provincial Park
Ranked #3 of 13 things to do in Alliston
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 July 2017 via mobile

A very beautiful park with many hiking trails of different difficulty levels. The longest of which being the Bruce trail, a 7km hike. Another heavily advertised site is the waterfall at the end of the meadow trail, which was incredibly underwhelming, and not worth the long walk. Furthermore, there isn't a lot of parking and gets crowded fast so it suggested to go earlier in the morning.

I know many look to the Forks of the Credit as a Provincial Park and great for hailing. It's true; it's good for all of that. I; however, think of the Forks of the Credit and a fantastic drive. For the last 25 years I have been taking an annual leisurely drive (at least one) in the summer. I look forward to it every year. The drive is wonderful, relaxing, and beautiful. Throughout the entire drive through the area you'll be able to hear a variety of birds. The scenery is lovely and definitely worth it. I love to stop and go into a variety of shops ... I certainly never miss getting an ice cream! This year I even purchased rain boots. It's out of season but I got a good deal so I couldn't resist.

Plenty of hiking trails and they are good for people of all age groups. From Waterfall to running stream it has it all.

Parking is minimum $4.50 for 2 hours, $7:50 for 4 hours and $14:50 for all day. I took the second one and visited the Waterfall and walked the trails alongside the running stream. It was a lovely day out and I would recommend it strongly if you are a nature/hiking person.

Hiked a 12km loop from Forks of the Credit Inn to Brimstone (Forks of the Credit Road) and back. Mid week is very quiet and lots to see. Love the different levels of the trails including the challenging Dorthy Medhurst side trail.

The Forks of the Credit Park is beautiful in the fall, but it's best in the spring. So many of our trails in Caledon are in the forest, but the Forks Park has wide open meadows as well as deeply incised forests. On those first sunny days of spring, you can feel the warmth on your back in this park. I suggest lying down in a protected spot and just absorbing the sunshine. Call it vitamin D if you want.

My hiking guide, Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes, describes many of the trails that crisscross this great park. If you want detailed instructions on visiting the waterfalls and ruins, lazing by the Credit River and wandering through the hamlet of Brimstone, it will tell you how. It will even give you ideas on where to stop for lunch or a latte after your walk.

The Forks of the Credit Park is a lovely hilly place with a great network of trails. It is where the Niagara Escarpment meets the Oak Ridges Moraine so you get near cliffs as well as the kames and kettles of the moraine. But be warned, it is no where near Alliston, despite what Trip Advisor says. This is an error due to the fact the park is managed by the same group that manages Earl Rowe Provincial Park, which is near Alliston. The Forks of the Credit Park is in Caledon.
