Wodehouse Creek disappears into sinkholes in this blind valley

On May 13th this spring, the new Wodehouse Karst Side Trail will be officially opened. From the entrance on the 7th Line just south of the hamlet of Wodehouse, a visitor will be able to walk past the old homestead and barn foundations, past the group of sinkholes where Wodehouse Creek disappears, and down the Niagara Escarpment slopes to the main Bruce Trail where the water reappears in the Kimberley Springs that feed Bill’s Creek. Continue Touring the New Wodehouse Karst Side Trail ...
