Forks of the Credit Scenic Road
by Gary McWilliams (aka Festival Nomad)
Your can reach the Forks of the Credit Scenic Road from two directions!
From the west, it’s through the Village of Belfountain.
From the east, it’s off of Highway 10.
Belfountain is a very charming village located high on the Niagara Escarpment.
For a small village it has a lot to offer visitors and residents.
Belfountain is the gathering point for many Forks of the Credit “scenic” rides.
The “ride” eastward starts high on the Escarpment!
The Forks of the Credit road has a lot of twists and turns.
As I have said before, Judi and I think that it is one of the most scenic road we have explored.
When driving the road, you must be very cautious!
Not only are there a lot of curves, there is, usually a lot of traffic!
Bicyclists love to test their skills and stamina on this road, especially uphill!
Motorcycle groups also love to tour the Forks of the Credit road!
The road in one particular place is so steep that their is a “switch-back” needed to traverse the road!
Caution and slowing down is also needed in lower parts of the road. Here the Credit River runs along the side of the road.
Slowly down does have its advantages! The Forks of the Credit Scenic Road is so scenic, that slowing down allows you and your passengers (you should include friends and family in the scenic adventure!) to really enjoy and appreciate the “ride“!
If you haven’t had enough “adventure” and are ready for “more“, follow the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park signs.
The road to the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park is also very beautiful!
Again, drive slowly, you don’t want to miss a thing!
Now that you have reached the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park, have fun!
