Bruce Trail

The Bruce Trail is the oldest and longest marked hiking trail in Canada. It is 840 km long, with over 440 km of side trails. Every year more than 400,000 visits are made to the Trail as people walk, snowshoe, watch wildlife, take photographs and admire the glorious scenery of the Escarpment.

The Bruce Trail was instrumental in the Escarpment being named a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve by the United Nations in 1990 - one of only twelve such reserves in all of Canada. The Bruce Trail is a member of the Ontario Trails Council through affiliation with Hike Ontario.

In 2009 the Bruce Trail Association changed its name to the Bruce Trail Conservancy which is reflective of the Bruce Trail's mandate to conserve the land on which it resides. Trails-A-Z lists over 100 different trail segments, such as The Bruce Trail - Toronto Section, Caledon,  Beaver Valley, Terra Cotta or Iroquoia (to name just a few),that make up the Bruce Trail.

With over 280 Bruce Trail trailheads, the Bruce Trail is big! You can support the Bruce Trail directly or you may want to purchase something from the Bruce Trail store.
