A weekday at Belfountain
Oct. 2020
Currently this park is operating under pre-booked reservation system. So make sure to make a reservation before visiting. I visited this park on a weekday last week. The way to the park was amazing through the turns of the hill at Caledon. The park itself did not have much of fall colors. Due to covid, most areas are marked as single way but there were no one to restrict you to go the other way. With more traffic on weekends, it might be challenging.
The hike around the park is moderate. It might be difficult with very small kids as some areas are through the jungle and did not have proper road. Don't try to bring a stroller, it'll not work here.
The river rapid was fine. there are 2 bridges over it. The primary one is just at the entrance of the hike, beside the falls.
Expected lot of fall colors, going there in the peak season but somewhat disappointed. The drive was pretty amazing though. Make sure to go towards the Cheltenham badlands roads for another amazing drive through the colorful Caledon.

Day Trip

Day trip in summer. Going out of the hassle and bustle of GTA. Paid parking is available. The restrooms are clean. You can have a picnic and BBQ.

NOT the place to see fall colours (though the area is)
Oct. 2019
We headed this way during the Thanksgiving weekend to admire the fall colours. We chose this park as we'd never been. The drive through Caledon was like a fairy tale. Absolutely stunning fall scenery! We drove down several side roads and were amazed. Then as we approached the town of Belfountain there was a traffic jam. It turned out half of the GTA flocks to this park. But WHY??? The park is tiny for a conservation area. There are several much bigger and more picturesque parks in Milton and Hamilton. There is one very short trail - 600m. There is a 30 minute time limit for the picnic tables - ridiculous!!! But above all - most of the trees in the park are evergreens do there's hardly any fall colours to be seen here! Save yourself the $7 per person and lot's of disappointment ans SKIP THIS PARK!

Not worth the price we paid..
Aug. 2019 • Family
It was a nice place but entry fee ruined our experience. $10 parking fee and $6.5 each person entry was way too much for a small conservation area. There was nothing much to do. Suspension bridge, Hike and small artificial waterfall were nice but not something extra ordinary, you would pay $36 for 4 persons. I was very disappointed. I have been to several other parks better than this for free or just with parking fee. Not going there again. Not recommended as well.

Nice little park
Aug. 2019 • Family
We visited here whilst on holiday and did the gorge trail . Wear stout footwear as there are lots of roots to clamber over but it's fun. A mix of board walk and trail paths but some of these are over rooty surfaces so not suitable for disabilities or pushing tiny kids. Our eight year old had no problems. We loved the suspension bridge over the Credit river and a little cool of our feet alongside the Credit par way through. Beautiful natural environment enhanced by a dam with water fall and a fountain and picnic area at the top. There are deep steps down to view the cascade if water and a man-made cave which is shut off but you can look through the bats. Picnic areas and water taps available. Toilet block is clean and in good order. Parking good in a carpark. Dogs on leads allowed.

Nice Place to Relax
Jun. 2019 • Couples
The Belfountain itself is not anything particularly spectacular. The environs however are nice to spend a relaxing day at. There is a small suspension bridge too from either side of which you can get some nice pictures. We saw some very unusual flora too.

Beautiful but Busy
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Very nice area. Places to swim, lots of greenery, and wildlife. There is a cool suspension bridge great for taking pictures and it's really pretty following the river. It was very packed on the weekend had to find somewhere else to park so keep that in mind when coming.
Just be careful being so close to the city gets very busy on weekends, no parking in park and finding parking around it can prove to be difficult.

Ruined by the crowds
Jun. 2019 • Family
This is a beautiful place but it has been ruined by the crowds and thoughtless visitors. So sad to see the amount of littering and lack of respect for the privacy and safety of local residents. Island lake in orangeville has a much larger - and greater variety - of trails and activities (biking, boat rentals, fishing, swimming..etc). For people looking for an escape from the city please keep driving just a little further north!

Beautiful but can be very busy
Aug. 2018 • Friends
I have visited Belfountain Conservation area several times. The best time to go is in the morning on a weekday to avoid huge crowds. Being so close to Brampton and the GTA, it is a popular getaway for many people, as it should be: it is very beautiful. However, on a sunny weekend afternoon, you will be sure to struggle to get parking in the conservation area or anywhere in the entire village of Belfountain.
The conservation area features a lovely trail through the woods, a suspension bridge, fountain, gardens and picnic area. For those looking to really escape into nature, the trails here connect with the famous Bruce Trail and lead into the nearby Forks of the Credit Provincial Park.

tl;dr It is very beautiful, but don't go on a sunny weekend if you don't like crowds.
