Trillium Creek Watershed
- Trillium Creek is a tributary of McCartney Creek in Blueridge
- The headwaters of Trillium appear to be culverted so that the first visible sign of the creek is as it flows out of a culvert under the path between Medwyn and Dunrobin. Trillium flows south between Emerson Court and Medwin Place and Walpole Crescent through a relatively natural forested area. South of Emerson Place, Trillium enters a deep forested ravine and flows southeast to join McCartney
