Humber Valley Heritage Trail Association - Bolton Chapter         

Who We Are

The HVHTA is a not-for-profit organization that was incorporated on June 6, 1995. Through an agreement with the Toronto Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) HVHTA has the right to establish and operate a trail for recreational hiking on TRCA lands in the Humber Valley. The TRCA shall have the right to exclude all non-hiking uses of the trail. HVHTA endeavours to provide the highest quality pedestrian hiking experience to enable learning and appreciation of the amazing natural beauty and diversity of the Humber Valley.

The Humber Valley Heritage Trail Association is a group of enthusiastic volunteers who have accepted the responsibility for developing and maintaining a pedestrian trail through the Humber River Valley from the Trans Canada Trail on Humber Station Road near Albion Hills Conservation Area in the Town of Caledon, through Bolton, to Binder Twine Park in Kleinburg in the City of Vaughan.

Where We Are

Proceeding south from the Trans Canada Trail, you will traverse Albion Hills Conservation Area and Duffy’s Lane through an interesting array of old fields, meadows, lowland cedar groves and mature upland maple forests. A side trail extends to the Highway 50 - Columbia Way intersection and on the Caledon Wellness Centre Parking lot. The main trail continues south through ancient climax Hemlock groves and crosses the Humber River in the Glasgow Road area. It winds along the river through downtown Bolton to Caledon-King Townline Road.  Planning of the trail in King Township and Vaughan is proceeding.

Our Mission

  • To plan, create, maintain and promote a public recreational hiking trail system in the Humber Valley Watershed for recreational and educational use, benefit and enjoyment of the general public. The system of public recreational hiking trails will be located in the Humber Valley Watershed from Palgrave to Lake Ontario, linking to the Bruce Trail and the recreational trails throughout the Humber Valley Watershed.
  • To promote, support and engage in public education regarding the appreciation, renewal and protection of the natural environment surrounding the Humber Valley trail system, and to encourage ecologically responsible attitudes towards it.
