Whenever I tell people about The Great Trail of Canada, their response is always something like this: “Wow, 24,000 kilometres is one hell of a workout!” But, for many of us, The Great Trail isn’t simply about one long hike or intense physical exercise.

In fact, spending just a small amount of time on trails can help keep your brain active and boost creative thinking. As someone who regularly escapes writer’s block by walking along Montreal’s Lachine Canal, I can attest to this!

This month, I’d like to highlight the many ways the Trail can fuel our creativity. While the link between being in nature and increased creativity is nothing new, I’m always delighted to hear about people like Karen Edwards, who use the Trail to find artistic inspiration. I’m also thrilled that TCT will be hosting a series of Nature Sketch events on the Trail this month, in partnership with the Bateman Foundation!

So, what are you waiting for? Soak up the last of the summer sun and get those creative juices flowing.
