The world’s largest trail has finally been completed after 25 years.

The Great Trail that links 15,000 communities via 24,000 kilometres of trails also includes the Sea to Sky corridor. The The not for profit organization, Trans Canada Trail that was launched in 1992 marked the completion this week with a ceremony in Victoria. The trail includes footpaths, roadways and waterways.

Trails are owned and operated at the local level and span almost 3,000 kilometres in British Columbia, 81 of those kilometres being the Sea to Sky trail. The trail system does not follow a specific point A to point B route, but instead links up thousands of communities via pre-existing and purpose built trails.

Trails span from Victoria to Inuvik, NWT to Nipigon, ON to Cappahayden, NL and numerous cities and towns in-between. Free maps and details of each section of the trail is available online here.

Even though the trail has finally been completed volunteers will continue to add loops and convert roadway to greenway to create new adventures for users.
