Blue Mountains Bruce Trail Club Section End-2-End Badges

#1 Club Organized End 2 End Fundraiser

This badge is only obtained when you register for the annual End2End. Choose to hike with other end-to-enders by participating in our organized Blue Mountains section End-2-End fundraiser. This event is over two days. This badge is only given to hikers who complete our section through this organized event. You must register on-line.  Hikers will hike approximately 70 km of trails from Swiss Meadows to Lavender (or Lavender to Swiss Meadows). Kilometres may vary due to trail changes.  

Please note, if you only complete one day at this event you will be able to re-register the following year in order to complete the second day.

“The significance for the new badge is to have a bald eagle soaring overhead riding the rising warm air currents created by the Escarpment. The Escarpment areas that we protect along the trail can be good habitat for the eagles because they provide large forest tracts for nesting. The escarpment edge also allows them a wide view of their surroundings, as well as updrafts for soaring. In Native culture, the eagle is considered the strongest and bravest of all birds. For this reason, its feathers symbolize what is highest, bravest, and strongest.”

#2 Independent End 2 End Boot Badge:

Complete the 70km of trails from Swiss Meadows to Lavender( or Lavender to Swiss Meadows) on your own schedule. Keep a hiking log* (of all Main Trail sections as you complete them) and by the end of your journey, submit these logs so we may officially recognize you as a Blue Mountains Club End-to-Ender and present you with your badge!

To be recognized as officially completing the Blue Mountains Section Independent End-2-End Badge, we ask you to choose your payment option as outlined above. You must ensure you send/upload your hiking logs* as well as the date you completed your End-2-End.

Explore our winter wonderland in the Blue Mountains section by hiking our trails for the Winter End to End badge.

Our winter badge involves hiking the section from Lavender to Maple Lane or Maple Lane to Lavender with two exceptions. 

Exceptions: The annual winter closure from November 1st to May 1st affects the following area: The section between km 61.5 and km 64.3 is closed and at this time has no reroute (Mission Road Side Trail is closed -bridge closed). A reroute is required to avoid the Devil’s Glen Country Club ski hills. Therefore, at km 26.0 (15/16 Sideroad Nottawasaga unimproved road) you will see a large boulder where the trail intersects with the Ganaraska Trail. Follow the Ganaraska Trail down the hill to Concession 8 where you will turn north to connect with the Mad River Side Trail ( Glen Huron). Walk on the blue blazed trail until it rejoins the white blazed trail on the right at km 30.6 just after the bridge. Continue on the white blazed trail across the Devil’s Glen Country Club parking area, turning left into the woods. Continue on the white blazed trail. Complete the remaining 67 kms on your own schedule and keep a hiking log of all sections as you hike them. Once completed, submit/upload your log to be officially recognized as a Winter End to Ender and receive the winter End to End badge.
