In 1960 the idea of a public footpath spanning the entire Niagara Escarpment was born. Never before in Canadian history had a trail of this scope been realized. Gaining access to the Niagara Escarpment was the critical first step in building the Bruce Trail. Regional Clubs were established by 1963. Each Club was responsible for organization, landowner approvals, construction and maintenance. Tobermory, 1967 - Canada's Centennial Year - the cairn at the northern terminus of the Bruce Trail was unveiled. Seven years of determination, support, vision and hard work were realized when the Bruce Trail was officially opened. Nine Bruce Trail Clubs and their volunteers support The Bruce Trail Conservancy: The Niagara Bruce, Iroquoia Bruce, Toronto Bruce, Caledon Hills Bruce, Dufferin Hi-Land Bruce, Blue Mountains Bruce, Beaver Valley Bruce, Sydenham Bruce, and the Peninsula Bruce.
