Terra Cotta Conservation Area
The Terra Cotta Conservation Area was originally a privately-owned recreational facilitiy. The Credit Valley Conservation Authority purchased the land in 1959 and added trails, a visitor centre and one-acre swimming pool. The swimming pool has since been replaced with a wetland. The area consists of 485 acres of valleys, cliffs and bedrock plains mixed with wetlands, ponds and diverse forests. Terra Cotta Conservation Area offers special events on certain dates such as the Basics of Wildnerness Survival program.

Silver Creek Conservation Area
Next to Terra Cotta Conservation Area you will find the even larger Silver Creek Conservation Area. Silver Creek is Credit Valley Conservation's largest land holding at 1080 acres and consists of tall forests, Bruce Trail access, escarpment hills and Silver Creek which is a Credit River tributary. Trails can also be accessed via Bruce Trail from Terra Cotta Conservation Area if you are looking to add kilometres to your hike.
One way to access the Silver Creek Conservation area is via the Bruce Trail from Terra Cotta Conservation Area. However there is parking at the side of the roads near trails but keep in mind that much of 8th Line and Fallbrook Trail have steep gravel roads which may be challenging for some vehicles.
