  • Fishing and points of interest along trail
  • Grey Sauble Conservation is one of many landowners who have partnered with trail leads to enable the Trout Hollow Trail*
  • The 10.8 km Trout Hollow Trail takes you along the valley of the beautiful light blue Bighead River, where you can see a mixture of woodlands and meadows, as well as the remnants of past industries. Salmon, trout, deer, kingfishers and wild turkeys can be found during their active seasons. Interpretive signage on the Trail is found at the ruins of a sawmill, grist mill, hydro dam and powerhouse.  The latter supplied electric power to Meaford in the early 1900’s.


Trout Hollow, in the mid-1860’s, was occupied by a sawmill, rake factory and cabin, owned and operated by the Trout Family from Meaford. John Muir, an early advocate for the preservation of wilderness who helped to preserve the Yosemite Valley and the Sequoia National Park, and founded the Sierra Club, worked at this sawmill from 1864-1866 before going back home to the U.S.

To learn more about John Muir visit: http://www.johnmuir.org/canada/cfjm.html maintained by “The Canadian Friends of John Muir.” His story is told on trail signage. “He believed that mankind is just one part of an interconnected natural world, not its master, and that God is revealed through nature.” Source: PBS National Park

*Private landowners are sharing their properties with the public; please stay on trail and pack out any litter.
