8 km of Bruce Trail Optimum Route
For more than 50 years, 8 kilometres of the Bruce Trail have 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.
Thanks to the hundreds of donors who responded generously in 2018, the Bruce Trail Conservancy has made the first payment in our financial commitment towards this extraordinarily important acquisition.
