Creek Side Walk - Bridle Trail Loop

Royal Botanical Gardens Hike 3.2 km 1 hour Mixed

Description:  Creek-side loop in the Hendrie Valley.

Grindstone Creek originates above the Niagara Escarpment in Flamborough. It drains an area of 90 square kilometres making it one of the main tributaries discharging into the northwest-end of
Hamilton Harbour .  A 50-hectare marsh lies in Hendrie Valley where the lower portion of Grindstone Creek flows. This highly productive, shallow wetland, northeast of Cootes Paradise, provides crucial spawning, nursery and adult habitat for many native fish as well as food and shelter for a variety of birds, mammals, amphibians and insects.

  Access from Unsworth Avenue
