Trans Canada Trail: the 16,000 kilometre dream

This is the official book of the Trans Canada Trail, the longest recreational trail on the planet, a 16,000 kilometre dream that celebrates our vast nation by connecting its people from coast to coast to coast. Approximately three-quarters of Canada's population live within a fifteen-minute drive of access to the Trail. Trans Canada Trail
This shared-use trail is designed to accommodate five principle activities - walking, cycling, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and, where possible, snowmobiling - as well as in-line skating and other means of travel, even canoeing.
Award-winning photographer John de Visser travelled to each province and territory, in all seasons, to photograph the diverse geography, architecture, cultural events and life that can be experienced along the Trail. Over 160 photographs are complemented by text and images that represent each intriguing facet of the Trail. In addition, eight distinguished Canadians offer their thoughts on the Trail's importance to Canada and its people.
Photographed by John de Visser. Written and edited by Gerry L'Orange. Published by Boston Mills Press, 2000.
