From your parked car on Centre Rd follow the white blazed main Bruce Trail west along River Rd for about 100 metres where the trail turns left into the bush. Do not turn left but stay straight ahead on the Kilgorie Side Trail. Follow this blue-blazed trail as it traverses 15th Side Rd right of way to where it meets up again with the main Bruce Trail at Prince of Wales Rd.

Head straight ahead (west) on the main trail and follow the white blazes for about 2.5 km as it winds its way west, then south and finally in a north east direction back to the intersection with the Kilgorie Side Trail on River Rd.  About 1 km along the main trail you will come to a short side trail (Bell Lookout Side Trail) that will steeply lead to good viewpoint.   After arriving at the River Rd make a right turn and take the 100 metres back to Centre Rd and your parked car.

 This loop trail falls within the Dufferin Hi-lands 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 Dufferin Hi-lands Bruce Trail Club’s website at
