About the Project
Connecting the Trails (The Trail) is a once in a lifetime Alberta project working to plan and build a trail from Calgary to Canmore. Upon completion, this trail will become part of the 28,000 kilometre Trans Canada Trail Network.
The Trail will be a multi-use pathway and regional connector in the Bow Valley and will offer a diverse range of opportunities and recreation, tourism, and commuting. People of all ages and abilities will be able to explore the scenic prairie, foothills, and mountain landscapes along the length of The Trail.
More than 60 people, the majority of which are volunteers, are working to develop and oversee the project. The project is proudly sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cochrane, working closely with an Owners' Council which includes representatives from the Town of Cochrane, City of Calgary and Alberta Forestry, Parks & Tourism.
DESIGNED FOR EVERYONE
The Trail aims to promote reconciliation, provide accessible options for all ages and abilities and encourage all citizens to choose active modes of transportation and recreation.
