THE NORTHERN TIP OF THE BRUCE TRAIL

 
WHO WE ARE

We are the northernmost club of the nine that make up the entire Bruce Trail which has its southern start in Niagara.  Utilizing only volunteers we maintain, conserve and promote the stunningly beautiful section of the Bruce Trail between Wiarton and Tobermory. 

Reaching The Cairn at the tip of the peninsula in Tobermory is the crowning achievement for hikers completing the entire Bruce Trail. 

Some of the highlights in our section are:

  • The Disappearing Stream at Colpoy's Bay

  • Jones Bluff Loop

  • The potholes of Hope Bay Forest

  • Lion's Head Lookout

  • The beach at Reed's Dump Side Trail 

  • Devil's Monument

  • Views to Bear's Rump Island and Flowerpot Island

  • Overhanging Point and Lord Hunt's Tunnel

 

Enjoy the Peninsula Bruce Trail and become a member, donate and volunteer.

WHAT'S HAPPENING

Current situation

March 24, 2020

Spruce up the Bruce & AGM Changes
The Peninsula Bruce Trail Club directors have reviewed the current COVID-19 situation and feel all our upcoming group activities should be cancelled or deferred.

The AGM planned for May 9 is postponed to a later date TBA. We plan to distribute a year-end review by email and via the website later in the spring.

The Spruce up the Bruce BBQ at Summer House Park, Miller Lake is cancelled.

PBTC trail work, work parties and hikes are cancelled. However, if you are social distancing with a partner then what better activity than to head out on a walk together and review the condition of the Bruce Trail? Also, it should be noted that access to some parks and conservation areas may be closed. Bruce Peninsula National Park is closed to all uses including hiking the Bruce Trail.

For the latest on trail use or access changes in parks and conservation areas through which the Bruce Trail passes, visit their websites or social media pages directly. You’ll find most of them listed on the Bruce Trail Conservancy website: https://brucetrail.org/…/parks-conservation-areas-and-other…

Plans and restrictions will be reviewed and updated monthly. Our Board is working to optimize safety and sends all our members and volunteers best wishes for good health.

It is critical that we respect the Trail closures made by parks, conservation areas, municipalities and other landowners along the Bruce Trail. In the Peninsula section this includes the Bruce Peninsula National Park, Neyaashiinigmiing Cape Croker and the Spirit Rock Conservation Area.

In the areas where closures are indicated, hikers can and should consider the Bruce Trail closed.

During these closures, please do not park on nearby roads, move gates or barriers, or hop fences, as these actions are illegal.
