PLEASE NOTE: Our Trail Angel program is currently closed until further notice due to COVID protocols.
The BMBTC offers a volunteer-run service for hikers wanting a shuttle between start and end points of a hike. Hikers with a single vehicle can arrange a shuttle in advance of a planned hike in the area. We make every effort to accommodate all requests, however cannot guarantee there will always be a volunteer available. Please send your request at least a week or two before you intend to hike. Once confirmed, a Trail Angel meets with the hiker(s) at their car, parked at the end of the planned route and takes the hiker(s) to the start of their hike.
Send your request to TrailAngels@bmbtc.org. Include the following details about your hike:
- Hike date.
- Pick up time. No earlier than 7 am please, for our volunteers.
- Finish point of the hike. State Map # and km from The Bruce Trail Reference: Maps and Trail Guide. This becomes the pick up location where you meet the Trail Angel.
The BMBTC will confirm the shuttle with you.
The Blue Mountains Trail Angels volunteer their time and gas with an expectation that their rider will make a donation to the Bruce Trail.
Making a donation to the Bruce Trail Conservancy online is preferred. On the BTC website, select “Donate Now”. Select a “Donation Amount’, and choose “Single Donation”. On the next page look for the “Comment” box. Enter “Trail Angel service by the Blue Mountains Club”.
Alternatively, write a cheque to the “Bruce Trail Conservancy”. In the memo line mark “Blue Mountains Trail Angel donation”. Give the cheque to your Trail Angel. Or mail it to the BTC Head Office, P.O. Box 857, Hamilton, ON L8N 3N9.
