A 7.5-km hiking and mountain biking trail. Rated at a moderate level of difficulty with some steep hills. Enter from behind Zellers and follow the Trans Canada Pipeline. Trail travels on roadways, pipeline, open fields and through forested area.
Varying surfaces from pavement to dirt to difficult terrain. While you are in Bracebrige you can enjoy the South Monck trail nearby to the Covered Bridge trail. This is not back country hiking by any stretch but is a nice break from the urban area and a taste of nature. This scenic trail follows Beaver Creek along a high ridge, behind residential properties crossing Beaver Creek into a beautiful, quiet wooded area.
This easy trail is 2 - 3 km in length depending on the route you take and consists of natural and paved surface. The trail continues along the east shore and exits at Mooreland Court, in the Meadow Heights Subdivision, or pick up the South Monck Trail on the Trans Canada Pipe Line. Follow the trail signs back to the Covered Bridge. From Highway 11, take Highway 118 west through Bracebridge to Ball's Drive.
Continue along Ball's Drive to the Covered Bridge. Parking is available along the roadside at the trailhead.
