The essence of the Dundas Valley is its rugged beauty; a continuous expanse of rolling hills, woods, meadows, and deeply cut valleys sheltering sparkling streams. After leaving the Trail Centre, the Headwaters Trail descends in two distinct stages to Sulphur Creek. It crosses the creek near Sulphur Springs Road, then turns southeast through a pine plantation to the Hermitage.
Crossing Sulphur Springs Road on the way the Mineral Springs Road, the trail traverses an area reverting to forest. Across martin's Road, it passes through a White Pine plantation, crosses a small tributary of Sulphur Creek, continues to the western end of the Harvest Trail, and ends near Paddy Green's Road.
The Dundas Valley's 40-kilometre trail system is open to hikers, dog-walkers, cyclists and equestrians. Enjoyment and safety among such a diverse group begins with every individual. Visitors are kindly encouraged to visit the Trail Centre for important tips on trail etiquette.
