Silver Creek Conservation Area

Silver Creek is a tributary of the Credit River. The Conservation Area contains several trails that take hikers along well worn paths through lush natural vegetation.

The Bruce Trail in Halton Hills starts just north of Milton and goes in a north east direction through the villages of Speyside, Limehouse, Silver Creek and Terra Cotta. A trail map by Credit Valley Conservation is available here: VIEW PDF

If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of the walking fern plant, a rare species that clings to shady, moss covered limestone rocks. The plant is named "walking fern" because new plantlets grow wherever the arching leaves of the parent touch the ground, creating a walking effect.
