    Bruce Trail Clubs offer over 1,500 guided hikes and snowshoe events annually for Members.
    Hike schedules are delivered by mail or email with your local Club Newsletter. Each listing outlines the location, length, level of difficulty of the hike and a bit about what you might experience.
    Organized hikes are a great way to get to know the Trail with knowledgable leaders, meet new people, and have a great time exploring the Niagara Escarpment.

    Our quarterly magazine contains spectacular photography, articles on trail events, trail changes, in-depth feature articles, and regular columns on the BTC's progress in securing and conserving the Niagara Escarpment.

Watch your magazine, newsletter, and email inbox for details.
