This is a special series of 10 hikes to complete the Peninsula section of the Bruce Trail. There will be a new accomplishment badge included in the registration fee featuring the Turkey Vulture - which will hopefully be made available on our last day.

For this E2E in 10, we will be following the main trail, generally heading northbound and eventually finishing in Tobermory. Please note that you are signing up for the entire series of 10 hikes as a Group Hike. The Peninsula in 10 series is geared to experienced long distance hikers with the expectation of a 3.0 - 5.0km/hr. pace maintained over a 15km plus day. The section is approximately 165km so daily distances will be based on available parking and timed parking restrictions. No dropout points have been established and therefore hikers who must dropout, will be responsible for their own transportation back to their vehicle. Please note that transportation back to your vehicle is very limited this section. Cell phone reception can also be a challenge in this section.

Please be honest about your hiking abilities. We will hike at a steady pace and there will be plenty of time for pictures and to enjoy the flora and fauna of this beautiful, rugged and challenging section.

Again, this particular set of 10 hikes is intended to be Moderate/Brisk. Please be honest about your degree of physical fitness prior to registration. It is a group hike so it is important that you are able to keep pace with the person in front of you.

Attire and Daily Hikes

Hikers are expected to wear proper hiking boots and layered clothing with the expectation of cool and possible wet weather. Sufficient food and water for a full day of hiking is required as well as hiking poles (if you use them), and wet weather gear is strongly recommended. Bug spray is also suggested. Clothing adjustments and bio-breaks are as needed. Please let the sweep know and they will wait for you. A morning break around 10:30 and a 10-15 minute on-trail lunch break will be scheduled. An afternoon break will be based on our expected finish time. Depending on weather and trail conditions, these times may vary.


The fee goes toward supporting the Peninsula Bruce Trail Club, which in turn supports the missions of the Bruce Trail Conservancy, which is "Preserving a ribbon of wilderness, for everyone, forever."

Car Shuttles and Missing Hikes

A maximum of 3 (of the 10) hikes can be self-completed as a result of scheduling challenges, but it is intended that this badge be earned while hiking as part of a group led by a certified hike leader. Car shuttles are shared amongst the hikers. If you know you will miss more than 3 of the hikes, it's likely best to sign up for another end to end, however, whatever hikes are completed on this series may go toward completion of an independent E2E for the regular Peninsula E2E Flowerpot badge. If you are able to complete the hikes you know you will miss ahead of time, all the better.


This series will be through-hikes and will require car shuttling. You must be willing to drive and/or be a passenger. Some parking locations require paid parking, and hikes that enter the Bruce Peninsula National Park. The fee of this E2E-in10 does not include any parking/entry fee for hikers. These costs, where applicable, will be shared amongst all participants unless you have a parking or park pass.


It is strongly recommended you make reservations for accommodations as soon as you register for the hike. Accommodations can be made anywhere in the Peninsula but Lion's Head is about mid-way.


We will meet for each hike by at least 7:45am each day. A schedule for meeting and start locations will be sent to each participant in April. We will begin in Tobermory and hike the BPNP area the first four day to limit the parking costs and restrictions. After that we will move south. The schedule is subject to change.

The hike is limited to 8 participants, including the hike leader.
