All Hikes Are Cancelled

In light of the deepening global pandemic the Toronto Bruce Trail Club has made the preemptive decision to cancel all hikes.

We have a responsibility to our members and to everybody to work together to protect the health and safety of all members of our society.


The Toronto Bruce Trail Club stands in solidarity with the Black/African Canadian community in the fight against systemic racism and injustice. We are committed to helping build a nation where everyone is included and is treated with dignity and respect and lives free from violence and fear.

The Toronto Bruce Trail Club is working to identify and engage with organizations in the Black/African Canadian community focused on combating systemic racism as well as those organizations dedicated to expanding educational and economic opportunities for Black/African Canadians.

The Toronto Bruce Trail Club is requesting to meet with and present information to these organizations and their members about the therapeutic benefits of the hiking experience. The goal is to raise awareness of who we are and to be inclusive, so that our membership reflects the multicultural diversity of our city.
