Celebrate Canada’s Oldest and Longest Footpath: Bruce Trail Day October 6th

Submitted by Marg Glendon

Bruce Trail Day is an annual event celebrating Canada’s oldest and longest footpath, hosted by the Bruce Trail Conservancy and each of its Bruce Trail Clubs.

The Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC) is a charitable organization which is dedicated to establishing and preserving a conservation corridor including the Bruce Trail along the Niagara Escarpment. The Peninsula Bruce Trail Club (PBTC) volunteers maintain, conserve and promote the beautiful Bruce Trail between Wiarton and Tobermory. PBTC invites you to join us at two locations on Bruce Trail Day!

Peninsula Bruce Trail Club is excited to collaborate with Parks Canada for BRUCE TRAIL DAY 2019! Learn more about the Bruce Trail. Get outside and join us for a guided hike to the Grotto along forest trails and scenic cliff tops to learn about what the Bruce Trail has to offer. For those interested in hiking a little further, we will continue on to Overhanging Point. Learn about wildlife, plants, water, rock formations, land conservation and stewardship. Snacks provided! Bring water and wear sturdy footwear.

Parks Canada parking reservation fee required. Reserve your parking space at parkscanada.gc.ca/grotto or call 1-877-RESERVE. 

Guided Hike is FREE! Meet at Head of the Trails at 12:00 p.m. Hike 12:30-2:30 p.m.
