The Bruce Trail

The Bruce Trail

Beginning at in the south, the Iroquoia Section of the Bruce Trail hugs the ancient shoreline of Lake Iroquoia, following the winding path of the Niagara Escarpment, and forming a horseshoe around the western end of Lake Ontario. While the Trail passes through a densely populated area (the City of Hamilton), for the most part the hiker will be walking on a woodland path with only occasional glimpses of the surrounding urban sprawl. Our Trail and its surrounding natural areas are home to many species of bird, plants and animals.

The Bruce Trail Conservancy and the Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club rely on our membership to support our on-going efforts in maintaining the trail and preserving the Niagara Escarpment. Please consider a membership in the Bruce Trail Association to ensure the future of our beautiful Bruce Trail.

Dofasco Trail closed until September

The boardwalk section of the Dofasco 2000 Trail will be closed from June 1 until September. The area is closed due to hazard trees, which pose a risk to trail users’ safety.

Due to the presence of species protected under the Migratory Birds Convention Act, there are restrictions on removing the trees that will not be lifted until the end of July. Tree removal will be carried out in August with the trail reopening in September.

HCA will carry out trail maintenance and repairs to the boardwalk in the same time period.

Information will be posted on when the trail is reopened to the public.
