Collect 'em all!
We know that hiking brings rewards all on its own, but it sure is nice to commemorate our achievements or be inspired to try new challenges with a good looking badge.
Bruce Trail End-to-End Badge
This is the big one. It recognizes the completion of the entire main Bruce Trail on foot.
To be recognized as an official End-to-Ender with the Bruce Trail Conservancy, and receive this badge, we ask you to:
- Send us your trail logs*
- Provide us with the date you completed your End-to-End
- Be a BTC member at the time you complete 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 the dates of your hikes and where you started and ended each day. It might be worth having a separate page for each club section (especially as these will help you request Club Badges).
- We operate on the honour system.
- We give equal recognition all End-to-End hikers regardless of sequence, direction, speed, or whether the End-to-End was completed as a thru-hike or in sections. The BTC does not maintain records of End-to-End completion time or of End-to-Enders gender, age, or other characteristics.
- We issue an End-to-End badge, a certificate, and a unique official End-to-End number.
Our colourful version
This alternate Bruce Trail End-to-End Badge is available for $5.00 those who have already received their official End-to-End number and badge above. Sometimes it's nice to have options!
