One of nine sections of the Bruce Trail, the Beaver Valley section extends from Craigleith to Blantyre covering, 117 km of main trail plus an additional 25 km of side trails. It takes hikers across diverse landscapes from the top of the escarpment with grand views of Nottawasaga Bay and the Beaver Valley, through fields and forests, by creeks and waterfalls accompanied by the flora of the different seasons or the colourful foliage of fall.

In 1963 a number of enthusiastic people joined together to organize the Beaver Valley BTC. See our Hike Schedules for hiking and related activities throughout the year. See our Club News and Events.
