How your support helps

Take a look at just a few sections of the Trail that need your help.

Your gift today will make The Great Trail even greater by:

  • Converting interim roadways to greenways
  • Repairing damaged boardwalks and bridges
  • Reconnecting Trail sections that have been closed due to damage caused by extreme weather
  • Cleaning and clearing overgrown sections of the Trail
  • Making the Trails more accessible for users of all abilities

Did You Know?

  • The Great Trail is the longest network of multi-use recreational trails in the world, stretching over 27,000 kilometres and linking over 15,000 rural, urban and Indigenous communities from coast to coast to coast.
  • The Trail is home to the Columbia River Skywalk, one of the longest pedestrian suspension bridges in North America.
  • The highest point of the Trail is along the Kananaskis Country Trail in Alberta where you can climb up to 2,185 metres
  • Ontario has the longest section of The Great Trail, at over 5,200 kilometres.
  • The Trail is connected, but our work will never be complete. We need your help to ensure The Great Trail is protected and enhanced for future generations of Canadians.
