This trail follows the Credit River Valley from access point at Burnamthorpe Road at Walnut Grove Rd. and traverses through to the Junction of Mississauga and the South Millway.
The beautiful trees, quiet river and the sounds of birds can be heard throughout this pleasant valley trip. This is one of many trails in and around Mississauga that allows for the use of bicylces on and off roads, through natural and urban settings. This great network of trails was developed through the City Master Plan as well as through the support of the Mississauga cycling committee.
