Hiking 2500 km across Ontario on The Great Trail in seconds per day
Ever wonder what it would be like to walk across an entire province on its trail systems? On our 4-year #hike4birds across Canada on the 27,000 km long Great Trail, we trekked just over 2,500 km while crossing Ontario. This is what our walk across Ontario looked like, in 2 seconds per day.
In 2019, I sold my house, donated my possessions and quit my job to fund and begin a 4 year, 24,000 km trek across Canada on the world's longest recreational pathway - the Great Trail (formerly the Trans Canada Trail). We started in Cape Spear, NL on June 1st 2019 and we are walking west to Victoria, BC, and then venturing north from Fort Saskatchewan to Tuktoyaktuk, NT. While few others have made this trek in its entirety, none have done so for a cause and with the primary purpose of promoting diversity, accessibility and multiculturalism outdoors while striving to get youth engaged with and connected to nature.
So far we have hiked more than 6500 km across Newfoundland, Cape Breton and Nova Scotia, as well as Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, entered into Quebec, trekked across Ontario and Eastern Manitoba to Winnipeg.
This adventure is blogged, with new pictures and videos of Canada from the trail being posted regularly. It is fun to watch and free to follow along for anyone interested! So if you are curious about travelling Canada, fascinated by what our nation has to offer, or want to see what sorts of natural spaces and amazing wildlife we have right here check out our adventure!
We invite you to "Come Walk With Us" as we continue to hike across Canada on the Great Trail from 2019 until 2022. To follow our journey and learn more about our #Hike4Birds, please visit the links below:
