Canada’s Great Divide Trail

The Great Divide Trail (GDT), is a wilderness hiking trail in the Canadian Rockies. The trail closely follows the Great Divide between Alberta and British Columbia, crossing the divide no fewer than 30 times.

It begins in Waterton Lakes National Park at the Canada-US border (where it connects with the Continental Divide Trail) and ends in Kakwa Provincial Park north of Jasper National Park. The Great Divide Trail is 1,200 km long …


Fewer than 20 people a year thru hike the GDT. If you might be interested, try to get a copy of the only guidebook.


Work your way through the official website – Especially the FAQs.
