Headwaters of the East Humber River

A gnarled and ancient willow tree marks the spot on the south side of Lake St. George, near Oak Ridges, where the East Humber River begins its journey from northern Richmond Hill, through southern King Township, and on to the cities of Vaughan and Toronto, and into Lake Ontario.   The East Humber River rises on the south side of the Oak Ridges Moraine and joins the main Humber River, which rises near the Niagara Escarpment, north of Toronto.   The Humber River was designated a Canadian Heritage River in 1999.
The first bridge that crosses the East Humber River is just steps from the Lake St. George headwaters.
