Made possible through collaboration with Parks Canada and with funds from generous BTC donors, 2018-2019
Peninsula section (Tobermory, Map 42, ~km 148.9 to ~km 159)
8 km of Bruce Trail Optimum Route
For more than 50 years, 8 kilometres of the Bruce Trail passed through the Driftwood Cove land, a stunningly beautiful stretch of the Bruce Trail near Tobermory, thanks to generous permission from the private landowners.
In July 2018, the Bruce Trail Conservancy made a commitment to support Parks Canada's acquisition of Driftwood Cove, expanding Bruce Peninsula National Park. This represented a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to preserve this extraordinary landscape and secure an unprecedented 8 km of trail.
On November 30, 2018, the Government of Canada finalized the purchase of the Driftwood Cove property near Tobermory with financial support from the Bruce Trail Conservancy.
The acquisition is bringing this land into permanent protection and will provide guaranteed access for the Bruce Trail in perpetuity. Without our financial commitment, the Parks Canada acquisition simply would not have taken place.
Thank you to the over 2450 donors who contributed to the preservation of Driftwood Cove in 2018 and 2019.
