About The Great Canadian Hike

The Great Canadian Hike is a national challenge to embrace trails in a physically distant world! We’re calling on Canadians to collectively hike The Great Trail of Canada’s 27,000 kilometres in 31 days. From humble strolls to epic adventures, October 1 to 31 is your chance to hike, walk, jog, cycle, paddle and experience The Great Trail as a participant in the Great Canadian Hike. The Great Canadian Hike is only in its first year, but we hope to make it an annual challenge. People of all ages and abilities are invited to step out and enjoy Canada’s natural wonders with us, in a safe and responsible way. Share photos or videos of your hike with the hashtag #GreatCanadianHike for a chance to win!
