Stretching over 24,000 kilometres, the Trail connects 15,000 communities and is within 30 minutes of 80% of Canadians. However, our journey didn’t end with our connection in 2017. The Great Trail must be nurtured, protected and cherish so that future generations can enjoy it for years to come.
Your gift to Trans Canada Trail (the non-profit organization that leads the development of The Great Trail) helps to ensure we protect and enhance this national legacy.
