For a more scenic route to Alton from the south, we suggest you take Highway #10 north from Brampton. Turn left on Forks of the Credit Road, and wind your way up Caledon Mountain to just before the picturesque village of Belfountain. Turn right (north) onto Mississauga Road and wind your way past the Caledon Ski Club. Turn right onto Cataract Road and continue past the Trans Canada Trail entrance for the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park to the traffic light at Charleston Sideroad. Cross Charleston, at which point Cataract Road changes its name to Main Street, and continue past the Osprey Valley Golf Course to Alton. Turn left at the stop sign onto Queen Street. Continue for one block, then right onto Amelia Street where you will see the Alton Mill driveway on the left.
