Happy Canada Day! Whether you’re having a BBQ with friends and family or you’re out on the Trail, we hope you’re enjoying the very best of our country.

I’m kicking off July with a spring in my step, thanks to the incredible response to The Great Trail Treasure Hunt. Over 1,800 entries have been received within one week – that’s almost double the entries we received for the entirety of last year’s contest!
As someone who has yet to buy a car, I’m a pedestrian in the best sense of the word. Therefore, I’m grateful for Jacqueline Scott’s recommended Trail sections that are not only connected to Canada’s Black history, but are also accessible via Toronto’s public transit system.

And if you’re looking for some downtime this long weekend, check out our new Travel page for the beautiful province of Manitoba. Whether you’re looking for a fascinating podcast or inspiration for your next Trail adventure, we’ve got you covered.
