International Friendship Trails
International Friendship Trails and the Bruce Trail Conservancy
The Bruce Trail is one of many wonderful footpaths worldwide.
As a founding member of the World Trails Network, the Bruce Trail Conservancy is working with international trail organizations to raise awareness of and support for public footpaths through the creation of Friendship Trails.
Friendship Trails are similar to twin towns, whereby trail organizations in different countries team up in the name of partnership, mutual publicity and international cooperation.
The Bruce Trail Conservancy currently has 9 Friendship Trails. In each case, a route on the Bruce Trail (main and side trails) and a corresponding route on the international trail have been designated as a Friendship Trail, displaying special signs to mark the partnership.
Connecting the World of Trails
The Bruce Trail Conservancy is a proud member of the World Trails Network.
The World Trails Network brings trail associations, trail advocates, enthusiasts and professionals together from around the world to foster global collaboration and networking for the betterment of the world’s trails.
