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).
