Caledon Hills Bruce Trail Club is one of nine member clubs that form the Bruce Trail Conservancy.
The mission of the Bruce Trail Conservancy is: “Preserving a ribbon of wilderness, for everyone, forever.”
The Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC) is one of Ontario’s largest land trusts and the steward of Canada’s longest marked footpath. We actively preserve and care for land within the Niagara Escarpment UNESCO World Biosphere to protect its ecosystems for the benefit for all. We responsibly connect people to nature through the Bruce Trail and our protected natural areas.
The vision of the Bruce Trail is to permanently secure a natural protected corridor along the Niagara Escarpment. We are making progress – as of Nov 2021, 68.9% of the Bruce Trail is secure from development and will be there for future generations to enjoy.
The Caledon Hills Bruce Trail Club (CHBTC) is one of the nine clubs that manage a section of the Bruce Trail – responsible for maintaining, stewarding and promoting our section of the Bruce Trail within a conservation corridor.
The CHBTC section contains 71.3 km of main trail and 40.4 km of side trails, starting at the south, from the Badlands following the Niagara Escarpment to the southern end of Mono Cliffs Provincial Park at our northern end.
1200 members including 100 volunteers are part of the CHBTC. Our volunteers include hike leaders*, trail captains, land stewards, work party volunteers, Board members with diverse skills and other support volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a member and/or volunteering, please see the Membership Page and/or the Volunteer Page on this website for further information. Being a member of the Caledon Hills Bruce Trail Club and/or volunteering is a great way to connect – with nature and with like-minded people!
