We Want to Share the Bruce Trail with the Masses!
We designed our hiking excursions in 2021 after identifying the demand for an organized thru-hike of the Bruce Trail, Niagara section. Now, we are the only company offering complete section tours of this Ontario treasure. We’re passionate about showcasing the landscape and highlighting The Bruce Trail through a culinary experience of wild food and camp-style dining.
The Bruce Trail
Stretching 900 kilometers from Niagara to Tobermory, the Bruce Trail is a southern Ontario secret. The trail is named after the Bruce Peninsula, encompassing the trail’s northernmost segment. The peninsula gets its name from James Bruce, 8th Earl of Elgin, who was Governor General of the Province of Canada from 1847 to 1854.
In 1960, Raymond Lowes, a Stelco metallurgist, shared his vision of a footpath to friend Robert Bateman, a Canadian naturalist and painter. The idea was embraced and a trail committee was born including Ray Lowes, Dr. Norman Pearson, Dr. Robert MacLaren, and Dr. Philip Gosling. Dedicated to the cause, the committee ventured door to door, eliciting the support of area landowners. Unveiled in 1967, the trail follows the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve containing the oldest forest ecosystem and trees in eastern North America.
