2: The Great Trail, Canada
The Great Trail is a 15,000-mile nationwide network of trails, showcasing Canadian diversity at its best. This will be the largest network of multi-use trails the world has ever known, connecting 15,000 communities and opening up Canada’s immense landscapes with more than 500 trails to choose from.
The Great Trail, or Trans Canada Trail (Sentier Transcanadien), spans urban, rural and wilderness landscapes on greenway, waterway and roadway. That diversity makes for an unparalleled range of experiences, from Vancouver’s Seawall to New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy, Alberta’s High Rockies, Ontario’s Niagara-on-the-Lake and Quebec’s fall foliage.
The Great Trail is a national network promoting six activities: walking/hiking, cycling, paddling, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.
