ROCKWAY NEWS: To ensure the responsible year-round management of the protected area for public access and enjoyment, NPCA has installed automated gates and paid parking will be in effect starting May 4, 2024. Rockway will always remain free to access for walk-up visitors and users who access the site by bike or other modes of active transportation.

 

To promote hiking in St. Catharines, the Niagara Bruce Trail Club will host three special hikes as part of the St. Catharines Go Green Event. Details are available on the St. Catharines Downtown Association website here.   

You can register for a Brisk Hike with Faye Perkins here;  the Nature Hike with Mary-Lyn Hopper and Lindsay Taylor, starting at 9:30 a.m. with this link.  The “Easy Does It Hike” led by Diane Marlatt begins at 9:00 a.m. and you can sign up here.

All 3 hikes will commence at The Gateway to St. Catharines, which beautifully bridges nature with the urban environment.

This closure is expected to be in effect for 7 weeks (to week of June 17). During the closure, the interim bypass illustrated on the map will serve as the temporary thoroughfare for Bruce Trail users.

Bruce Trail Conservancy’s Indigenous Land Acknowledgement Statement 

The Bruce Trail Conservancy wishes to acknowledge and honour the lands of the Niagara Escarpment as the traditional territory of Indigenous peoples. In both spirit and partnership, we recognize and thank the Anishinaabek, Huron-Wendat, Tionontati, Attawandaron, Haudenosaunee, Métis, and all who provided stewardship of these lands over millennia. Recognition of the contributions of Indigenous peoples is consistent with our commitment to making the promise of Truth and Reconciliation real in our communities. We are grateful for the opportunity to live, work, and play here and thank all those who have served and continue to serve as caretakers of this special place. 

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The Niagara Bruce Trail Club values and welcomes diversity. We aim to be an accessible and inclusive community that honours, respects, and reflects the various ways people connect with the Bruce Trail and the Bruce Trail Conservancy. Fulfilling our mission of preserving a ribbon of wilderness, for everyone, forever, requires the inclusion of diverse voices and perspectives. Everyone has a right to enjoy and to conserve our natural environment, and should be free to do so without experiencing discrimination. Together we must cultivate an inclusive culture and environment on the trail where people of all identities are encouraged to belong and feel valued.
