Trails Canada

Trans Canada Trail
- It will be the longest trail of its kind in the world, spanning approximately 18,000 kilometres and it will wind its way through every province & territory. Much of the trail has been built along defunct rail lines donated by CP and CN. Other parts of the trail have been paid for by individual donations. For $50 any person can have their name inscribed on a metre of trail and more than a hundred thousand people have done so.

The main section of the trail runs along the southern areas of Canada connecting most of Canada's major cities and most populous areas.

There is also a long northern arm which runs through Alberta to Edmonton and then up through northern British Columbia to the Yukon. 

The Trail will accommodate five core activities: walking, horseback riding, cycling, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling (where possible/desired). The trail is equipped with regularly spaced pavilions which provide shelter as well as fresh water to travellers.
