BE PART OF THE
THE TRAIL (STAGE ONE): CALGARY TO COCHRANE
The Trans Canada Trail stretches over 27,000 kilometres coast to coast, offering tourists and citizens alike, the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of our vast nation.
Currently, portions of this trail, between Calgary and Cochrane, as well as Cochrane to Canmore, remain unfinished or are not entirely usable for all travellers. Stage one of The Trail project seeks to organize interested Albertan residents, organizations, businesses and communities to collaborate on the completion between Calgary and Cochrane, so that it will be continuous and ready for all to enjoy.
Stage one of The Trail from Calgary to Cochrane will travel along Treaty Seven Territory, connecting with the existing Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park and the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway Trail in Calgary, through the Town of Cochrane via a future bridge to the east of Cochrane. While much of this pathway system exists, it is yet to be fully connected and still requires the major fundraising and logistical efforts of the construction of the pedestrian river crossing into Cochrane.
The oversight of this initiative is being coordinated by the Rotary Club of Cochrane. The hope and ambition of this project is to plan, develop and construct a lasting trail that will become a permanent legacy for the area, available for all as a passive (non-vehicular) transportation option.
Our vision is that future generations will use this trail to enjoy the beautiful lands we call Alberta.
BECOME A PARTNER
This project has been made possible, in part, by generous land contributions from some of the founding pioneer families of Alberta including the Haskayne, Harvie & Robinson families. This path will also travel along lands of the Treaty Seven Territory including eventually, the Stoney Nakoda Nation. This project honours the natural beauty of our collective heritage and seeks to enhance the future of all Albertans, by providing an exquisite way to enjoy the beauty of the rolling foothills and river valley.
WILL YOU PARTNER WITH US?
The opportunity to become a legacy partner on The Trail project, is now. We are excitedly inviting any individuals, businesses or organizations interested in contributing towards the full completion of this trail.
