BTC UPDATE - MAY 11, 2020

Phased Re-opening of the Bruce Trail beginning May 15

With the recent Provincial announcement on the re-opening of Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves, the Bruce Trail Conservancy is beginning the process of a safe and controlled staged re-opening of the Bruce Trail.

Many sections of the Bruce Trail will re-open for hiking on May 15, 2020 as we coordinate with our partners.

Please regularly check this page and our trail changes page for updates.

Help Needed to Crush Covid

Each year, the Niagara Bruce Trail Club (NBTC) raises funds in support of the Bruce Trail Conservancy through special hikes and events. Due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, some of these fundraising events have had to be cancelled.

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
