Celebrating GVTA's 50th anniversary

The Grand Valley Trails Association (GVTA) is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2022! This is a significant milestone, representing half a century of maintaining and conserving some 250 kilometres of pedestrian trails in the Grand River watershed.


In honour of its 50th anniversary, a number of events and activities are planned throughout the year, including special hikes, photo contests and family activities. All of the details will be added to this page as they become available.


Bird Photo Contest

We want to celebrate birds and how they add to our enjoyment of nature and hiking. So in honour of National Bird Day, we’re hosting a special photo contest as the first event in 2022. GVTA members are invited to submit their best bird photos between January 5 and January 19. Check out the rules and other details to participate.
