The 6.5km of the main Bruce Trail (marked by white paint blazes) takes you through this escarpment mature woodlot, where large, flat, moss covered debris was left by a retreating glacier. Explore the steep valley wall of Snow’s Creek leading to a wooden bridge crossing the cascading creek. Entering a cedar forest, you will cross a boardwalk and continue to descend along the valley, crossing owl creek. You are now heading out of the conservation area as you begin to once again climb the escarpment.
