There’s always a reason to celebrate Canada, and to get outside in our beautiful nation.

And The Great Trail is now your next reason to explore the country.

Twenty-five years ago, a small group of visionaries had a dream to connect Canada and its people with a multi-use recreational trail. Now, The Great Trail – which stretches almost 24,000 kilometres – will finally be connected. It’s the longest trail system in the world and it’s in our backyard.

The site’s interactive map is incredibly detailed and lets you engage with the trail in an easy and fun way –  letting you focus on small stretches of the trail, see photos, and learn about the trail type in that area as well as the history of its build.

The Great Trail

Imagine the country’s sites and scenery along this incredible trail, showing off Canada’s best landscapes.

In case you’re not sure of what this may look like, here’s a peak.
