The Bruce Trail Conservancy is made up of 9 different clubs, each of which maintains a specific portion of the trail. The Dufferin Hi-Land Bruce Trail Club is the smallest of these clubs, stretching 51.4km of the 800+km trail. This portion of the trail spans from Mono Centre to Lavender, while the trail in its entirety spans from Queenston, near Niagara Falls, to Tobermory, and follows the Niagara Escarpment. The Bruce Trail is Canada's longest foot path.
Not only is the Niagara Escarpment a natural geological feature formed nearly 400 million years ago, it is also a UNESCO designated World Biosphere Reserve. UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, has designated only 15 of these reserves in Canada, with the Bruce Trail among them.
This blog is designed to inform the reader about various aspects of the Dufferin Hi-Land Bruce Trail Club, including events, membership, organized hikes, and volunteer opportunities, as well as to educate about the enjoyment that stems from hiking and involvement in this magnificent ecosystem.
