The Great Trail – created by Trans Canada Trail and our partners – began as a bold dream in 1992. Now, 25 years on, it is 24,000 kilometres of multi-use recreational trail – the longest network of its kind.
This year, building on the momentum of celebrations for the 150th anniversary of Confederation, and to thank our generous, devoted and fun-loving volunteers, partners and donors for all their hard work in helping connect the Trail across the country…
We are hosting a party!
Interactive displays, prizes and great swag provided by Trans Canada Trail, Hudson's Bay and the Grand Portage, KEEN, The Weather Network, CLIF Bar, Scouts Canada, Running Room, Junkyard Symphony and Starwalker.
Food trucks – Angry Dragonz & Original Souvlaki…and free McDonald McFlurries!
