I knew several of the people who originally came up with the idea for the trail in the early 1960s, and went on my first Bruce Trail hike about 1964. It's nice to know that an idea originally developed and put in place by volunteers has flourished so well.
Let me add a few caveats before I present my four favourite walks over the next four days. Note I said 'walks'. I'm not a 'hiker', I'm a 'walker'. I go slow, I look around, I always have my camera, and I like to stop and enjoy the moment. I get tired going up hill. So the four walks I've chosen are all short, relatively easy and scenic; many Bruce Trail hikers would have others, likely over longer stretches of the trail, as their own favourites.
The Bruce Trail is an important part of our world here in the Beaver Valley;
