The western branch of the Rouge River begins in the Town of Richmond Hill as a network of small headwater streams flowing from the hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine. Take a walk along the beautiful river valley with its lush vegetation and cool, clean meandering streams and appreciate the diverse communities of plants and animals thriving in this valleyland ecosystem.
Along the way there are several parks featuring sports facilities, picnic areas and playgrounds. The walk is approximately 4 km in length (one way, depending on the route taken), along both paved and gravel surfaces, traversing slightly to moderately sloping terrain, and requiring a moderate level of exertion. Approximate walking time: 1 hour. Wheelchair accessible routes available from Headwaters Community Park. Parking is available at Timber Mill Park and Headwaters Community Park.
