Established in 1967, the Bruce Trail is Canada’s oldest and longest footpath; the trail follows the edge of the Niagara Escarpment for over 900km. It is named after Bruce Peninsula and Bruce County through which it passes.
Beginning in the Niagara Peninsula and ending in Tobermory, the trail covers lands owned by the Government of Ontario, municipalities, conservation authorities, private landowners and the Bruce Trail Conservancy. Roughly half the trail passes through public lands.
Hiking along the trail, one can expect to see many waterfalls, most notably Niagara Falls, and a variety of plant and wildlife. Trail maintenance is the responsibility of the Bruce Trail Conservancy and its nine subsidiary clubs. This tract of the Bruce Trail (Kelso to Grimsby) is managed by the Iroquoia Club. Volunteers maintain foot bridges, retaining walls, handholds and stiles. For more information click here
