An End-to-End is the completion of the entire main Bruce Trail (currently 890 km) on foot.
This can be done over 30 days or several years depending on how you'd like to approach it.BTC E2E badge


Hiking the whole Bruce Trail

If you decide to go ahead with an end-to-end hike, it is highly recommended that you purchase the current Bruce Trail Reference Guide, especially if you are going to attempt any of the sections on your own. The guide will be an invaluable resource in planning your trips. The guide can be purchased at major bookstores and through the BTC website.

Visit our Accommodation and Camping section for more information on places to stay during your trip.

To be recognized as an official End-to-Ender with the Bruce Trail Conservancy, you will need to do the following:

  • Send us your trail logs*
  • Be a BTC member at the time you complete your end-to-end
  • Provide us with the date you completed your end-to-end
  • Send us $15 to cover the costs of processing your end-to-end and to pay for your end-to-end badge.

*The trail logs can be as simple as list of where you started and where you ended on a particular day. It might be worth having a separate page for each club section.

Hiking each Trail Section: Club Badges

Each Bruce Trail Club also offers a badge for completing its section of the trail. To obtain a Club's End-to-End badge, submit your trail logs for that Club's section directly to the Club. Include a self-addressed envelope and the fee for the badge (usually between $3 and $6).

If you complete the entire trail, keeping your trail logs organized by Club section will make it easier to sort out which pages you need to send to which Club when you apply for the badge.

Badges from each Bruce Trail Club:

Niagara Club Badges Blue Mountains Club Badges
Iroquoia Club Badges Beaver Valley Club Badges
Toronto Club Badges Sydenham Club Badges
Caledon Hills Club Badges Peninsula Club Badges
Dufferin Hi-Land Club Badges
