Fresh Air and Family Fun - The DHBTC Has It All!

Hey there! Welcome to the Dufferin Hi-Land Bruce Trail Club’s official blog. Here you’ll be able to find information about upcoming events, the trail, and the ways you can become involved! 

The Bruce Trail is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. The trail, which stretches along the Niagara Escarpment from Niagara to Tobermory, is one of only a few UNESCO designated reserves in Canada. It spans over 800km of trail and is Canada’s oldest and longest continuous trail.  It is divided into 9 clubs, each of which maintains a specific portion of the trail. The Dufferin Hi-Land Club is among those nine. This portion of the trail stretches from Caledon Hills to the Blue Mountain area.
The great thing about the trail is that whether you’re looking for volunteer involvement, physical activity, or quality family time, you’ll find it here. The trail is only possible through the hard work of volunteers and the generosity of donors. If you’d like to get involved, please see our membership page for further information. 

Speaking of family time, Family Day is just around the corner. With a day designated to time spent with family, what better way to enjoy time together than to get outdoors. Though the winter has been fairly mild, we’ve just been blessed with some beautiful snow. Bring your snowshoes or your winter hiking boots and enjoy the trail’s beauty while covered in a bed of snow.  The trail is free to anyone, but please leave it the way you found it – take nothing with you but photos and leave nothing but footprints. 

For further information about the trail, membership, or any of the events that are planned for the future, please feel free to peruse the other pages found herein. We hope to see you soon! Have a wonderful Family Day!
