Silver Creek is a tributary of the Credit River. The Conservation Area contains several trails that take hikers along well worn paths through lush natural vegetation.
The Bruce Trail in Halton Hills starts just north of Milton and goes in a north east direction through the villages of Speyside, Limehouse, Silver Creek and Terra Cotta. A trail map by Credit Valley Conservation is available here: VIEW PDF
