Welcome to the Annual Bruce Peninsula Hiking Festival. This year, we propose that you join us for a “Walk on the Wild Side” as we enjoy access to places very near to those classified by Parks Canada as true “wilderness” - right here on the Bruce Peninsula.

While we are enjoying the gift of wilderness, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Bruce Peninsula National Park and begin a series of 50th Anniversary celebrations for Bruce Trail clubs as well. And speaking of gifts, we also celebrate a wonderful tradition of giving that affords the Bruce Trail Conservancy further opportunity to secure and preserve the optimum trail route for future generations.
