Bruce Trail - Closed to Hiking

In an E-mail sent Friday March 27, 2020 Michael McDonald the CEO, Bruce Trail Conservancy said:

"We didn’t think we’d ever be encouraging people to stay off the Bruce Trail, but unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures. For the safety of our communities, and to assist the province with its efforts to keep our communities safe as the COVID-19 pandemic quickly evolves, I have an important request:

Please postpone your use of the Bruce Trail for walks or hikes until further notice, to minimize the spread or contraction of COVID-19.
Many parks, conservation areas, municipalities and other landowners along the Bruce Trail have already made the difficult decision to close their facilities and access to trails. In these areas, hikers should consider the Bruce Trail closed. We support these organizations and landowners in their closures to halt the spread of the virus."



Please be sure to follow the advice of Public Health Officials to stay safe and keep others safe. You'll find trusted information here:

Our Area of the Bruce Trail runs from Lavender to Craigleith.

The terrain changes abruptly as the Bruce Trail enters the area known as the Blue Mountains. Here are Ontario's best-known ski resorts, set among high bluffs interspersed with deep wide valleys. From the Trail, there are excellent views of the rolling countryside and Nottawasaga Bay. Our area has wonderful hiking opportunities year round. Come on out and enjoy them. We hope to see you on our trails. New hikers are always welcome on our outings. Check our Newsletter for times and locations.
