There are multiple trails at Potter’s Creek. One of my favourite loops I love to do weekly is the Creekside Trail. This short trail is only .08km. To access the trail you must enter via the Sumac Trail. After a short 0.3km hike you’ll arrive at the trailhead witch starts at the bridge that crosses Potter’s Creek.
