The Humber Valley Heritage Trail Association (HVHTA) has built and is maintaining a hiking trail along the beautiful Humber valley north from Bolton, Ontario to join with the Bruce Trail and the Caledon Trailway. It is hoped, with other chapters, to eventually develop a trail all the way down the Humber Valley to the Waterfront Trail on Lake Ontario.

Our trail runs on lands owned by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.

We also want to thank the following for their generous financial assistance:

Etobicoke Chapter of Friends of the Environment, Palgrave Rotary, Bolton Lions, Bolton Kinsmen, Ontario Trails Council, Toronto Bruce Trail Club, Bruce Trail Association, Hike Ontario

Our goals are to promote and create recreational trails and to promote public education about the natural environment.

How can you have healthy exercise, experience the beauty of nature, enjoy the company of your friends and family and indulge in your own solitary reflections ALL at the same time ? By taking a hike on the “World Famous Humber Valley Heritage Trail” as Hiker Mike Kirby calls this amazing walking and hiking facility right at our back door. Throughout those 14 years, the HVHTA has built a 16 kilometre hiking trail by its own fund –raising abilities without drawing on Caledon tax dollars. It was awarded the Caledon Environmentalist of the Year prize for providing this hiking facility free to the public and enabling outdoor education with an interpretive guide. Hiker Mike, the top authority on hiking facilities in the Greater Toronto Area gave his “Golden Boot” award to HVHTA in 1999 for being the best built and maintained trail in the Greater Toronto Area. Hiker Mike has published two books of Southern Ontario hiking opportunities both featuring the HVH Trail. The HVH Trail has become a destination of choice of high schools wishing to provide bus loads of their students with both a nature interpretation experience as well as healthy exercise. HVHTA membership fee is $20 annually. Members paying their fee year after year receive a semi-annual newsletter. Beyond that the most essential benefit to becoming an HVHTA member is the knowledge that you have become part of a network of people, from Bolton and beyond, who are committed to protecting, restoring, enjoying and sharing the joys and beauty of hiking and walking in the natural beauty of Caledon. Hiking and supporting HVHTA is indeed powerful preventative medicine! The health and social benefits and nature experiences on the trail help us all to realize our greater potential.

We are looking for your help!  If you are interested in working with a dedicated group to ensure the continued operation and growth of the Humber Valley Trail, we want you!
