Bennett Heritage Trail


The Bennett Heritage Trail officially opened on Canada Day in 1992. The trail explores the Scottsdale farm that was donated to the Ontario Heritage Foundation in 1982 by Stewart and Violet Bennett. This 1300-hectare property borders the Niagara Escarpment sharing with it the special ecological qualities of the Escarpment.

The farm itself has actually been worked for two centuries, having been tilled by native people long before the arrival of the Europeans. Today the farm is still a working farm and is managed by the Credit Valley Conservation Authority.

Directions: Enter Scotsdale Farm (open daily nine a.m. to five p.m.) from Trafalgar Road just north of Highway 7. The sign is set back from the road. Look for it soon after you cross 27 Side Road. Drive toward the main farmhouse and park near the sign for the Bennett Heritage Trail.
