Petrolia Discovery Trail


The Petrolia Discovery Trail was originally a fitness trail in the mid 1970's. The trail came into disrepair and the fitness items were removed. In 2002 the original trail was re-cut and additional loops added.

The trail was officially named 'The Petrolia Discovery Trail' in connection with the Petrolia Discovery - a 19th Century working oil field which can be seen beside the trails as they wind through Bridgeview Park - Petrolia's heritage.

The Petrolia Discovery Trail is approximately 2 km in length winding through the north side of the Bridgeview Conservation Area. The loops offer the hiker a change to view trees associated with the Carolinian Zone, see historic oil artifacts as they were left and to enjoy nature along Bear Creek.
