After parking your car on the east side of Blind Line at Britannia Rd head north on the white blazed main Bruce Trail. After .6 km the River & Ruin Side trail turns right, off the main trail.

The River & Ruin Side Trail passes through a spruce woodlot, past the ruins of an old stone house and alongside huge willow trees close to Bronte Creek. When the creek is in flood it will be necessary to follow the High Water route on the return portion of the Side Trail.

When you reach the main trail, turn left and follow the main trail back to your parked car.

This loop trail falls within the Iroquoia 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 Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club’s website at
