Description

The longest section of trail in Dundas Valley, the Headwaters Trail leaves the Main Loop Trail between the Gatehouse Museum parking lot and Hermitage Ruins. Along the way, you'll pass the historic Griffin House Museum, rolling hills, forests, meadows, deeply cut valleys and sparkling streams. Crossing Martin Road, the trail leads through a pine plantation and a mature deciduous forest to Paddy Green Road where the trail loops back on itself.
