Bruce Trail

The Niagara Escarpment

Hiking the Foothills Trail in South CarolinaThe Bruce Trail stretches 850 km from Queenston Heights in the south to Tobermory in the North.

The trail follows the cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment, a greenway of natural beauty coursing through an otherwise developed region.

The promontory shown at left is on the Niagara Escarpment - roughly at latitude 45, longitude 81.

Use this GPS data to assist with your navigation. On the Bruce Trail there are numerous side trails and it is easy to get lost if you take a wrong turn. Even while on the trail you may lose sight of the blazes. In winter snow plastered trees can hide blazes and long stretches of monotonous scenery can lull you into misadventure, especially if you happened to be deep in conversation with fellow hikers :)
