Welcome to the PBTC
Side Trails Project
About the Project
In November 2022, the Peninsula Club's QR Code Side Trails project was started. It is all about engaging, educating and inspiring hikers to learn about the volunteer history of the club, as well as the unique geo-biological characteristics of the Peninsula section of the Bruce Trail.
Explore the stories and history behind the names of some of the side trails in the Peninsula section. While out on the trail, scan the QR code on the side trail signs with your smartphone to link directly to a short story or an audio recording of how the trail was named. Browse the website later for the full story.
More side trail stories will be added in the future, highlighting other features of the trails, such as the Peninsula's unique geological and biological diversity.
Before heading out, read BTC's important information about hiking and trail safety.
