End-to-End Hike

Please note: the 2021 End- to-End hike has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

In September, The Toronto Bruce Trail Club organizes its annual End-To-End hike which covers the entire Toronto Section of the main trail. This event is open to all hikers; however, we encourage you to purchase a BTC membership which helps to support securing and supporting the entire trail.

As a hiker your option is to hike the Section in 2 days (approximately 28 km on Saturday and 22 km on Sunday), or, if you really want to test your mettle, you can do it all in on Saturday. This one-day option is only offered on alternate years, so you won’t want to miss this opportunity.

The hike begins at the designated parking lot in the morning, where a bus takes you to the day’s starting point. Then you hike, self-guided and at your own pace. You’ll find checkpoints with snacks and assistance every 10-11 km and you get an official end-to-end badge when you finish.

There is a fee for participating which includes bus costs, badges, and refreshments. TBTC donates any profits to the Bruce Trail Conservancy to help secure land for the trail’s optimum route.

This is an event for experienced hikers as the terrain is varied and quite challenging. Hikes go rain or shine. Also, no dogs are permitting on this event. Closer to the date you will find more information in our monthly newsletter E-Notes and on this website. We are always looking for volunteers to assist with the event.
