Belfountain Conservation Area

10 Credit Park St, Belfountain, ON L7K 0E5

The Belfountain Conservation Area in Caledon has both unspoiled natural and man-made features to enjoy. The original owners wanted to create their own mini version of Niagara Falls on the Credit River running through their property and they did a good job: it's quite impressive, with a suspension bridge across the river giving you a great view. Aside from the waterfall there's also a pretty pond with a walking trail all around and another trail through the woods with rocky cliffs and the river and a second bridge below. The fountain, covered in moss, with a bell on the top, was commissioned in honour of the nearby village. Down some stairs beside the waterfall is a little man-made grotto. Stone retaining walls and wrought iron railings add to the interesting character of the place. The conservation area is not open during the winter but it's a great spot to visit spring through fall. I especially liked the trail around the pond with views of the trees reflected in the water.There are washrooms on site and parking.
