Bruce Trail day is an annual celebration of the incredible Bruce Trail and the wonders of the Niagara Escarpment; this year, Bruce Trail Day was celebrated on Sunday October 1. The Beaver Valley Bruce Trail Club (BVBTC) was excited to welcome hikers, both new and experienced, to the trail to celebrate belonging in the outdoors and #BruceTrailforAll.

In Thornbury, visitors at the Thornbury Farmers’ market were greeted by Club President, Joan Nuffield and Trail Development and Maintenance Director, Bob Hann. Joan and Bob shared news and awareness about the Bruce Trail and BVBTC 60th anniversary cupcakes with market-goers.

At the new Bruce Trail parking area on Grey Road 40, Glenda Collings and Kristina Rettie led two well-attended hikes which explored the trail around the Daphne and Gordon Nicholls Nature Reserve and Webwood Falls, respectively.

Attendees of Kristina’s family-friendly afternoon hike were treated to some extra special activities and take-aways as part of their hike experience. Hikers young and young at heart were encouraged to participate in a trail-themed scavenger hunt as well as to create some found nature art.
