Bruce Trail


The Bruce Trail is a continuous footpath (no bicycles are permitted), which follows the Niagara Escarpment, extending from Niagara-on-the-Lake to Tobermory.


A 20-kilometre section with associated side trails winds through St. Catharines and provides access to this truly unique and priceless natural treasure. Points of interest along the route include Short Hills Provincial Park, Morningstar Mill, Brock University and the current Welland Canal, as well as the previous three canals.
