The Forks Grind ascends up the side of the Credit Valley up and over the bluffs surrounding the Forks of the Credits. In .6km you gain approximately 500feet of

elevation with much of the hike in the 15-22% grade range.

Some ascents require climbing over small rocks approximately 3-4 feet tall mid

trail - much of the climb is stairs - and the ending has a well built rock stair

ascent with a guide rope on the side for additional balance.

Very nice views - feels like British Columbia in Ontario - great workout as well.

In the winter it can be very icy but is doable with proper hiking gear - however

descending without proper poles can be dangerous as much of the area is quite

icy and steep.

Directions:

Proceed down Forks of the Credits Road west from Highway #10. Parking is

opposite Chrisholm St. on the road. Once parked walk south on Chrisholm St

and the trail head begins at the end of that short street.

Enjoy!
