The Peninsula section is one of nine sections of the 890km Bruce Trail, Canada's longest and oldest marked trail. This section is an approximately 162km section starting at the end of the Sydenham section. More specifically, it starts in Wiarton and travels along the Bruce Peninsula until it arrives at the Northern Terminus in beautiful Tobermory.

Reaching The Cairn at the tip of the Peninsula in Tobermory is the crowning achievement for hikers/runners completing the entire Bruce Trail. 

The Peninsula section a very stunning section, but much like the Sydenham section, it is also very rocky and rugged! 

The further north you go, the longer the sections become between access points.  In addition the Trail is uneven, has deep and wide crevices, and requires scrambling to get over the rocks.

Because it's natural beauty, the Peninsula section attracts many visitors. Along the way, hikers and runners will see the multiple lookouts, the Grotto, Devil's monument (small sidetrail), and the Bruce Peninsula National Park, etc.
