Chris Walker Loop


This loop was renamed early in 2007 to honour a longstanding Bruce Trail volunteer. The Trail permits public access to properties acquired by the Bruce Trail Association as part of its program to secure in perpetuity a conservation corridor along the Niagara Escarpment.

From the parking area, follow the blue-blazes to the north for 800 m to the scarp edge. When you meet the white blazes of the main Bruce Trail, turn right. The lookout to your left is one of the most spectacular views along the entire Bruce Trail.

You are looking down on the three islands which today guard the mouth of Colpoy’s Bay: White Cloud, Hay, and Griffith. Just past a second lookout is an interpretive plaque which reveals some of the magic of this place. Continue following the white blazes as the Trail swings back to where you parked your car.

With file information from the Bruce Trail, for more information on this and other Bruce trails please purchase the Bruce Trail map and trail guidebook. 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.
