Hiking the Bruce Trail

The Bruce Trail is made possible with the help of local landowners who grant the Bruce Trail Clubs and its hikers access to their properties. Please see the Bruce Trail Hikers’ Trail Users Code to review trail etiquette.

With some exceptions, use of the majority of the Bruce Trail in the Beaver Valley is suitable for foot traffic only. No wheelchair accessible trails fall within the Beaver Valley Club boundary.

Intermittent Logging Spring/Summer 2017

There is an ongoing logging operation on private land affecting the main trail between km 40.3 and km 41.0, near McCluskey’s Rock . (See Map 25: Kolapore Uplands.) Due to wet conditions, logging activity is expected to continue into the Spring and/or Summer. Expect some trail disturbance. Stay at least 100m away from logging operations.
