All PBTC hikes welcome 2S-LGBTQQIAP+ participants and community allies. This hike is developed by Grey Bruce Pride and PBTC.

Join Peninsula Bruce Trail Club for a gentle hike along the Bruce Trail at Colpoy's Bay at Bluewater Park in Wiarton. This hike is on flat terrain and is a wheelchair accessible section of the Bruce Trail. As you hike - be a community scientist -  collect litter  found along the way. At the end of the hike, we will sort and count the litter - then, submit the data to Bruce Trail Conservancy. You will help us keep the trail clean and learn more about the type, amount and location of litter found here. All supplies provided! Everyone is welcome! After the trail cleanup, stay for a picnic lunch during our Trash Talk Café. Meet new friends and bring along some old ones, too! Help us protect nature! Teenagers – you can collect hours for your high school community service requirement.  All participants receive a "Hike It! Love It! Keep It Clean!" badge.

This will be a busy day at Bluewater Park. The Multi-Sport race will be using the Bruce Trail for part of the race. Supporters and sponsors will have tents set up at the finish line near Dockside Willie's. Look for our PBTC tent there. This will be a great day- with a festival feel in the air! Arrive a little early, as you may need to park a short walking distance from the Park.

What to bring: Bring your lunch, water and a lawn chair or picnic blanket. Wear sturdy walking shoes, sunscreen and a hat.
