Welcome to the Beaver Valley Bruce Trail Club!

Preserving a ribbon of wilderness, for everyone, forever.

Welcome to the Beaver Valley Section of the Bruce Trail! The Beaver Valley section of the Bruce Trail is comprised of 120km of main trail and 35 km of side trail which meander over 2662 acres of land (privately owned lands, Bruce Trail Conservancy owned land, Ontario Heritage trust lands).

The Beaver Valley Bruce Trail Club (BVBTC) is one of the nine clubs of the Bruce Trail Conservancy and is made up of hikers, volunteers and other supporters. The volunteers of the BVBTC are dedicated to conserving and caring for the Beaver Valley Bruce Trail lands. This important work protects the Beaver Valley Bruce Trail ecosystems for the benefit of all and make the land available to explore by foot along the magnificent Bruce Trail.

Come join us as a hiker, volunteer or both!
