How to get there and Where to Park: From Grey Road 13 (the Beaver Valley Road) between Kimberley and Heathcote, take Sideroad 22C to the west. The loop trail begins at the corner with the 3rd Line. Park beside the road.
Follow the white blazes of the main Bruce Trail to the west on the old cart track that is the continuation of Sideroad 22C. After about 1 km on your right (north side) you will see a sign for the blue-blazed Siergerman Side Trail.
This trail affords great views across the Beaver Valley and a nearby ravine. It heads north past the remains of an old homestead and a boulder fence, and then turns right to follow the lip of a picturesque ravine.
It next descends to a stream which it follows down to the white-blazed main Trail at the 3rd Line road allowance. Here at the intersection of the main Bruce Trail and the Siegerman Side Trail is a perfect spot for a picnic and a splash in the river.
When you have finished spending time in this lovely spot, turn right (south) to follow the white blazes up hill and back to your car. This short loop hike presents vividly the beauty of the Beaver Valley, and is especially attractive with the coloured leaves of fall.
