The Bruce Trail is Canada's oldest and longest marked footpath, measuring over 890 km from Niagara to Tobermory, following the magnificent Niagara Escarpment - a UNESCO World Biosphere reserve. This 10-day self-guided itinerary covers what many hikers claim to be the most spectacular section of the trail: The final stage (or beginning, depending on how you look at it) from Wiarton to Tobermory, covering the Bruce Peninsula from end to end. Each day on the trail affords endless outstanding coastal views perched high atop cliffs and along rocky beaches, looking out across the crystal-clear turquoise waters of Georgian Bay. You will swear that you are exploring Caribbean shorelines as opposed to the Canadian Great Lakes! With limited accommodation options, we've carefully selected a handful of inns located within walking distance to the trail, and have combined these cozy stays with a friendly transfer service. Your luggage is transferred as well, leaving you free to enjoy the trail with only a light day pack.
