Hiking

With nearly 900 km of main trail and more than 400 km of side trails, the Bruce Trail is one of the oldest and longest continuous footpaths in Canada. Following the Niagara Escarpment, it weaves its way from Niagara to Tobermory through some of the most beautiful scenery in Ontario.

We welcome all hikers to join our scheduled hikes and special events, however if you are not already a member of the Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC), we encourage you to consider becoming a member.  Your membership would support the establishment of a conservation corridor containing a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment, in order to protect its natural ecosystems and to promote environmentally responsible public access to this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

Our organized hikes have been classified according to type (Introductory, General, Tuesday) or badge (End-to-End, Sideways).  We also organize Bed & Breakfast hiking trips twice a year. If you prefer to go on your own, the Self-guided Hikes section has a few ideas for you.

To stay safe on the Trail, please take a look at our General Hike Information, Trail Safety, and Trail Changes pages.
