The Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled for Sunday April 19 is postponed until further notice.

We recognize that for many of us our hiking program is an essential service that allows us to get away from the city and the stresses of everyday life (and the current situation). Together, we will get through this, and will get stronger with lessons learned. Please keep in touch about your thoughts, ideas, suggestions and recommendations.
Stay healthy everyone!

Toronto Bruce Trail Club ~ Celebrating 50 Years
At the Toronto Bruce Trail Club, we have a dual mandate of supporting the Bruce Trail Conservancy in securing and preserving this magnificent footpath, and offering a variety of hiking experiences so everyone can enjoy it. Our dedicated team of volunteer’s maintain 50km of main trails plus many amazing side trails in the Halton Hills area, and our trained volunteer Hike Leaders lead hundreds of hikes each year across the entire Niagara Escarpment. We invite you to join us!
"Here stands a rugged, beautiful continuum of rocks, waterfalls, greenery and recreational opportunity that must be preserved in its entirety for us and the future." Ray Lowes, Volume 1, Number 2, Bruce Trail News, September 1963.
The Bruce Trail Conservancy is a charitable organization committed to establishing a conservation corridor containing a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment
, in order to protect its natural ecosystems and to promote environmentally responsible public access to this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve
Thousands of hikers enjoy the beauty of the Bruce Trail every year. The Toronto Bruce Trail club offers nearly 400 hikes each year and offer a variety of ways to get there. Car and bus explore the entire the entire Niagara Escarpment, from Queenston Heights to Tobermory. Urban walks explore nature close to home.
There are fast paced, all day hikes for ambitious hikers, slow paced, short hikes for hikers who want to enjoy the trails at a more leisurely pace, and everything in between.
