The Bruce Trail Conservancy
The Bruce Trail is Canada’s oldest and longest marked footpath. Stretching from Niagara to Tobermory in southern Ontario, the trail provides the only continuous public access to the magnificent Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
The Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC) is a member-driven, volunteer-based charitable organization committed securing the Bruce Trail within a permanently protected natural corridor along the Niagara Escarpment.
The BTC’s mission: Preserving a ribbon of wilderness, for everyone, forever.
The Conservancy is supported by 9 Bruce Trail Clubs including the Toronto Bruce Trail Club. Each Club is responsible for maintaining, stewarding and promoting the land and trails in their section.
With 900 km of main Bruce Trail and over 400 km of side trails, the BTC offers a myriad of ways to explore the natural beauty of the Niagara Escarpment on foot. The Bruce Trail connects explorers of all ages to the wonders of the Escarpment – cobble beaches, open meadows, waterfalls, rocky crevices, old-growth forests, and awe-inspiring views.
