The Bruce Trail is one of the most picturesque hikes in Ontario and also Canada’s oldest and longest footpath. The Trail starts in Queenston and ends in Tobermory, making it a whopping 840 km long.
Queenston marks the southern terminus of the Bruce Trail.
The southern terminus of the Bruce Trail is located at the stone cairn in Queenston Heights Park. Near the famous Niagara Falls, the park is perched on the west side of a deep gorge carved over the centuries by the Niagara River. The cairn marking the trail’s terminus is in a parking lot, about 160 metres from General Brock’s Monument on the easterly side of the monument’s park grounds.
On the way through St. Catharines and Thorold, hikers will pass all four of the Welland Canals.
