The Bruce Trail passes through land owned by many public and private landowners along the Niagara Escarpment. These partners in conservation not only contribute to our ribbon of wilderness, but also provide access for the Bruce Trail on land for which they are responsible.
It is best to visit the websites or social media accounts of these organizations directly for the latest on closures or changes to access - especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Where the Bruce Trail remains closed, please do not park on nearby roads, move gates or barriers, or hop fences, as these actions are illegal.
