Due to COVID 19 - Your HELP is Needed

Each year, the Niagara Bruce Trail Club (NBTC) volunteers raise funds in support of the Bruce Trail Conservancy through special hikes and events. Due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the following events have had to be cancelled for 2020 and most likely 2021:


Annual End-to-End

Laura Secord Hike

Abbey Road Tribute Concert

Steeltown Stomp


In these uncertain times, your special donation is as meaningful as ever.

Together, we can raise $20,000 to protect and preserve our Niagara Escarpment natural corridor.

For more information go to our donate page DONATE

GOAL: $20,000




Due to the COVID19 province-wide lockdown, effective December 26, 2020 our organized hiking program will be cancelled until further notice.

The Bruce Trail will remain open.  When using the trail, please observe trail etiquette 

  • Keep physical distance
  • Wear a mask if you are unable to keep your distance
  • Keep the trail clean
  • Stay on marked trail
  • All dogs on leash

If you arrive at a busy trail/park parking lot, change your plans and go elsewhere.
