From this point, where the main Bruce Trail heads east off of the roadway, the Cape Chin Side Trail heads west. Follow the blue blazed trail until it meets up with the main Bruce Trail in Cape Chin.  At this juncture turn right onto the main Bruce Trail and follow the white blazed trail for 3.2 km back to where you parked. You can shorten the whole loop business by turning right on to the Bard Side Trail, which you will reach about 1 km from Cape Chin.  This is a short blue blazed trail of about .5 km which will lead you to the main Bruce Trail which you turn right onto – taking you to your car.

Any dogs need to be kept on a leash on this side trail.  It is a birding naturalist’s treasure.

This loop trail falls within the Peninsula section of the Bruce Trail. For more information on other loop and side trails and the portion of the main Bruce Trail in this section please visit the Peninsula Bruce Trail Club’s website at
