The Great Trail

This year also marks the debut of Canada's Great Trail — a nearly 15,000-mile route linking 15,000 communities in Canada's 10 provinces and three territories. (The Appalachian Trail, by comparison, is a paltry 2,190 miles.) Begun in 1992, the Great Trail links existing, locally managed paths into a continuous corridor for hikers, cyclists, paddlers, cross-country skiers, equestrians, snowmobilers, and dogsledders alike.
