Bruce Trail Baton Relay badge

From hand-to-hand, hiker-to-hiker, a ceremonial baton is travelling the length of the entire Bruce Trail this spring in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the Bruce Trail.

Volunteers from each of the 9 Bruce Trail Clubs are carrying the 50th Anniversary Bruce Trail Baton in sequence from south to north - ensuring it travels along the Trail by volunteer power, until it arrives in Tobermory in time for the BTC's 50th Anniversary Celebration on June 10th.

The baton begins its journey on April 1st as the BTC Board of Directors present it to the Niagara Bruce Trail Club. It then passes to each successive Club.

Here's where the #brucetrailbaton will be this spring:

April 1  Presented to Niagara Club
