Historic Bruce Trail Walk

Join Peninsula Bruce Trail Club Volunteer Marg Glendon for a short, interpreted walk to learn about the Bruce Trail, Canada’s oldest and longest marked footpath. Guests will enjoy local stories about the history of the Bruce Trail and gain helpful hiking tips as they walk from the Bruce Peninsula National Park Visitor Centre to the Northern Terminus of the Bruce Trail. The group will then be joined by Hazel Smith who will speak about historic village life in Tobermory.

 

Historic Harbour Tour with Hazel Smith

Covering the period from 1850 to present, Hazel leads a 40-minute harbour walk from “Golden’s Dock” to the site of the original “Booth Fishery” and offers the colonial settler story from a maritime perspective, touching on the boom and bust of both logging and fishing industries. As a sixth-generation resident Hazel’s talk is infused with family and personal stories, ranging from the tragic to the amusing to the endearing.
