* A note on Maps:

The Google Maps linked above do not show the Bruce Trail but do give a general idea of where to access the Bruce Trail and roughly where the trees are located. Parking is marked with a blue "P" and the tree site is marked with a green evergreen tree shape.

It's best to use these maps in conjunction with the maps of the Bruce Trail Reference Guide (26th edition). Individual maps from this guide can be downloaded for $3 by clicking on the map numbers in the above table. Or the entire guide can be purchased in hard copy through our online store or at local book or outdoor retailers.

All proceeds from map sales go towards the Bruce Trail Conservancy's mission to establish a Conservation Corridor containing a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment.
