The Bennett Heritage Side Trail proceeds east from the parking lot behind the buildings of the Scotsdale Farm.  It passes a beautiful pond with a weeping willow and crosses Snow’s Creek.  The blue blazed trail continues across the eighth line. After crossing Owl Creek the trail turns right. Heading generally south the side trail will cross 27 Side Rd and then meet up with the main Bruce Trail.  Turn right onto the main trail and follow the white blazes for 5.4 km until you arrive at the beginning of the Bennett Heritage Side Trail.  Turn right and follow the side trail back to your parking lot.

This loop trail falls within the Toronto section of the Bruce Trail. For more information on other loop and side trails and the portion of the main Bruce Trail in this section please visit the Toronto Bruce Trail Club’s website at
