If you are looking for a short (4 km), and leisurely, loop walk, this could be a choice. Also, you may choose to extend the distance by adding the Credit Valley Conservation Trail (see orange line on map image below) to your walk.
To accomplish a loop walk at the Limehouse Conservation Area one may choose to park in one of three locations.
1) The small parking lot behind the Limehouse
Memorial Hall where the 5th Line meets 22 Sideroad (coordinates
2) The school bus parking lot/drop-off area below Limehouse Public School on 22nd Sideroad at coordinates 43.638365, -79.979024. Check Google Maps Street View.
NOTE: Parking in this 2nd location is prohibited on a school day. If you park here on non-school days, walk along 22nd Sideroad across the narrow bridge over the railway tracks towards the Limehouse Memorial Hall. Just after you pass over the bridge veer left at the entrance to the trail (note Bruce Trail white blazes). Check Google Street View.
3) The parking lot inside the Limehouse Conservation Area entrance at coordinates 43.631987, -79.974093 off the 5th Line. Check Google Maps Street View.
