The World's Longest Car-Free Road, and it's Beautiful!

The World's Longest Car-Free Road, and it's Beautiful!
Canada is about to make history by opening the largest trail network in the world, spanning over 24,000 km and connecting 15,000 communities from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic oceans.

The Trans Canada Trail, also known as "The Great Trail", was created back in 1992 during Canada's 125th anniversary celebrations with a goal in mind of connecting everybody together.

The Great Trail is 100% car free, allowing for hikers, bicyclists, horseback riders, cross country skiers, and snowmobilers to roam free about the trail.

Of the 400 community trails it makes up, each is owned and managed locally by trail groups, conservation authorities, and by municipal, provincial, and federal governments. To date, it has been funded largely by Canadian federal and provincial governments with significant contributions from corporate and individual donors.

The Great Trail is set for completion in 2017, in time for Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Take a look at the beauty the trail will offer for millions of people. Enjoy!
