Looking for a new challenge? Want to do something fun with the kids or grandchildren? Check out our updated badge page! The TBTC is excited to announce the launch of three new badges.
At the AGM we launched our iNaturalist badge. This badge is a fun way to help kids learn about nature. It is also fun for adults as well. Check out the requirements on our website. Please don’t forget that all observations submitted much be from the Toronto Section of the trail.
Not a fan of mud, roots, rocks and transportation issues? Why not explore some of the many fantastic trails right in the City of Toronto and earn our new Urban badge. Our team has drawn up a 74 km urban circuit that takes you through some of the best trails in Toronto. These include the Humber River Trail, the Don River Trail, the Waterfront Trail as well as the Finch Corridor. Check out our website for the route. We also plan to have hikes posted on the hiking schedule to help you earn this badge, although you can earn it by hiking the circuit independently.
Last but not least we have recently launched our new Fundraiser end to end badge. This awesome badge was designed by Joe Borges. What is more unique to the Toronto Section than the beautiful stone arch from the old mill on the Black Creek at Limehouse, Ontario? This special badge requires hikers to register for a special group hike in which you hike the entire Toronto Section of the trail. Hikers must be a member of the Bruce Trail in order to register. If you are interested in leading a series of hikes in order to help others earn this badge, please reach out to Tom Swales, Hiking Director. We also welcome certified hike leaders from other BTC clubs. It is up to the hike leader to determine the number of hikes that the section is to be completed in. Please check out the hiking schedule in order to register for one of these special hikes. The cost to register is $30
