Trails at Limehouse Conservation Area

The Bruce Trail through Limehouse Conservation Area

Distance – 1.6km

A white blazed section of the Bruce Trail passes through the area, meaning you are on the main trail of the Bruce Trail system. This part of the Bruce trail leads past a number of rock fissures before dropping through the “Hole-in-the Wall” on two ladders. The trail then follows the old Toronto Suburban Radial Railway before eventually crossing Black Creek on a bridge near the remains of an old mill. Before leaving the Conservation Area you will pass lime kilns, a restored powder magazine and an interpretive sign and lookout overlooking railway tracks.

Further exploration will wind you along two side trails (marked with blue paint blazes), the 1.6km Black Creek Trail and the 230m Limehouse Access Trail. The Black Creek Trail follows the cool, clear waters of Black Creek as well as changing forest communities found along the escarpment. The Limehouse Access Trail heads west to the parking lot and ball diamonds.
