Since 1963 volunteers have been the driving force behind the Bruce Trail. Volunteers are responsible for contacting land owners, marking the route, ongoing Trail maintenance, planning hikes in their communities, promoting the Trail, and performing a variety of other roles. Today over 800 volunteers act as the caretakers of the Trail.
This is your chance to help secure the Bruce Trail, share your experiences and develop lasting friendships. Volunteering with the NBTC allows you to choose from a variety of opportunities with various levels of commitment. From the boardroom to the Trail, volunteers typically commit between 4 to 16 hours a month to their positions.
Be a Niagara Trail Angel
Every once in a while we have requests to help out a hiker. The request is either to drop them off at the beginning of a hike or to pick them up at the end of the hike and drive them back to their car. We encourage all hikers to hike safely and in groups so when we get such a request we urge hikers to post their hike on the NBTC Facebook page to see if they can organize their hike with other people. When that doesn't work, Niagara Trail Angels have come to the rescue carpooling for a single hiker or a couple with one car. It doesn't take a lot of time and may happen a few times a year. Trail Angels get to meet new hikers, be wonderful ambassadors for Niagara Bruce Trail and feel good about helping someone.
