Get Involved


The trail between Wiarton and Tobermory offers some of the most spectacular scenery in Canada!  The views of white cliffs, green foliage and contrasting deep blue

Georgian Bay water is breathtaking.

The Peninsula Bruce Trail Club conserves, maintains and promotes

this iconic section of the Bruce Trail.  Included in our charge are such

quintessential properties as the Vanishing Stream Nature Reserve,

McIver Wetland, Boundary Bluffs, Chris Walker Nature Reserve, 

Otter Lake Nature Reserve, and the Light Nature Reserve.

Hike Leaders

Show your love of the trail.  Lead hikes for members and non-members; set the routes and set the pace.


If you have a special interest and would like to share your knowledge on a hike we want to hear from you. Let us provide support while you reveal new aspects of the trail for hikers, e.g. Birding, botany, geology etc.

Trail Captains

Maintenance of the Bruce Trail involves visiting your section (approx. 2 – 5 km long) with the purpose of keeping the trail clear and passable for hikers. Duties include renewing painted blazes and clipping back branches.  Also involved is reporting downed trees and other trail concerns through an on-line bi-annual Trail Status Report. 

Land Stewards

Each year the BTC spends from $1 to $2 million on land purchases, preserving hundreds of acres of Escarpment landscape and Bruce Trail corridor forever.

Under the Club’s auspices, twice a year, you walk and assess some of the most vulnerable landscapes to ensure that they are cared for.

The Peninsula Bruce Trail Club and the Bruce Trail Conservancy is committed to preserving a ribbon of wilderness, for everyone, forever. To make that a reality, we must do all that we can to help make the Bruce Trail and our organization a welcoming and inclusive space. We value and welcome diversity, and aim to be an accessible and inclusive community that honours, respects, and reflects the various ways people connect with the Bruce Trail and the Bruce Trail Conservancy
