The Great Trail has become fully linked, connecting the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic Oceans and the land in between.
The trail, nearly 24,000K worth, running, cycling and canoeing routes, became fully connected recently though further development is still ongoing in certain sections. The project, started as the Trans Canada Trail in 1992, has been 25 years in the making, in time for Canada 150.
As of September, 2016, the trail was between 85 and 90 per cent connected. The remaining trail systems were connected in the 12 proceeding months.
“I’m stoked, the Trans Canada Trail is now 100 per cent connected,” tweeted Minister of Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna.
