End-to-End & Challenge Hikes

A convenient, fun and safe way to challenge yourself and hike large sections of the Bruce Trail

In addition to their regular hiking programs, each of our nine Bruce Trail Clubs offers special end-to-end and challenge hikes each year.

Usually these events run over 1 or 2 weekends, with the Club often providing transportation options and water/snack stations along way. Registration fees are in effect and you'll receive a unique Club section badge at the end of the event.

Looking for shorter organized hikes?
Our Bruce Trail Clubs offer more than 1500 hikes each year for BTC members.
