It began as a dream in 1992: the idea of creating a trail from coast to coast to coast that would be a gift from Canadians to Canadians. This bold vision, the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) – The Great Trail of Canada – continues to capture the imagination and support of people across the country. Connecting us with nature, with the past and with one another, the world’s longest recreational trail winds its way across Canada’s magnificent urban, rural and wilderness landscapes. Once fully connected, it will link over 15,000 communities. As we look to 2017 and Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, The Great Trail offers us all a view of the horizon, of everything that is ahead of us and all the possibilities that await.
