Dear Friends:
 
These are indeed unprecedented times for all of us. We hope that this finds you and yours safe and well.
 
During this period of social isolation, we know that many of you, indeed so many of us, are finding refuge in outdoor spaces and, in particular, on The Great Trail of Canada. The beauty of the outdoors, the promise of hope that the arrival of spring brings and the opportunity to renew our spirits and our mental and physical wellbeing is brought home, especially now as we are grateful for the simple pleasure of a walk, a hike or a bike ride in our neighbourhood and on the Trail.
 
We are always pleased to see your photos and hear your stories about how The Great Trail is a place of connection, of belonging and of fulfilment of our desire to get and be outdoors. Thank you too for doing your part to protect yourselves, your families and neighbours by respecting physical distancing guidelines.
 
In these times when challenges seem to found around every corner, we at Trans Canada Trail are inspired to reflect on how grateful we are for the opportunity to steward such a tremendous national treasure. We know, and we often hear from you, that The Great Trail is very close to your hearts. We humbly thank you all for the contributions you have made, and continue to make, to provide all Canadians with a place of refuge, of solace and of renewal.
 
I look forward to our continued work together and to seeing you on The Great Trail very soon.
 
All my best,


 
Eleanor McMahon
