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.

The Bruce Trail Conservancy is a proud member of the World Trails Network.
