If your Holy Grail is an amazing trail, point your hiking boots toward Hamilton Halton Brant. The Bruce Trail, Canada’s oldest and longest footpath, is just the beginning of the scenic walkabouts that await. Treat your feet to a few hours of adventure on hundreds of miles of paths and trails.

When exploring our region’s trails, waterfalls and conservation areas, please follow posted safety rules, stay on marked trails and do not climb or bypass fencing. Stay at least a body length away from escarpment and gorge edges and always be alert for potential hazards such as falling rocks and slippery rock surfaces.
