Map #30 – Silent Valley Nature Reserve
The map above shows the configuration of three new side trails on the BTC’s Silent Valley Nature Reserve.
The Silent Valley Side Trail will link the parking area on the 2nd Concession South with the Bruce Trail and give access to the two other trails in the valley.
The Wilson Homestead Side Trail will take hikers to the early settler’s hand dug well, and the ruins of their house and barn. An extra attraction of this side trail will be the accident site of the aircraft that crashed on this property.
The third side trail we have called the Avalanche Pass Side Trail. This trail is somewhat more strenuous than the other two as it takes in the talus slope where at one point you will find huge boulders hanging above you, frozen in a suspended avalanche.
