The Trail Locator Lives! Relaunch today!

August 17, 2007 | 3 comments

For those of you who have breathlessly awaited the upgrade or others who were just plain annoyed at being unable to Navigate the Trail, some good news to start your weekend.

Thanks to our crack team of computer geeks, in particular Stéphane Simard, you can now enter a postal code, address or city anywhere in Canada and find the nearest TCT access point. The map format will be familiar to those who have previously used GoogleMaps.

Click here to check it out. To access the Trail Locator from our website, select the tab marked “The Trail” and click on “Navigate the Trail” on the left-hand side of the page. The pavilion search function is in development – we’ll let you know as soon as it’s up and running. In the meantime, have fun on the (virtual) Trans Canada Trail!


  • Great job, we bike the PEI section all the time

  • Good afternoon…………
    My son (age 13) and I rode the Cowichan Lake trail from the head in Lake Cowichan for approx. 10 km.
    I must admit to being disappointed in the trail for this distance as it was overgrown much of the way, leaving barely a bike width to pass through, was very rocky and full of ruts and holes, and signs were limited to say the least.

    We are not deterred however and will pick up the journey again at the point at which we turned back. We have cycled the southern portion of this trail about 2 years ago (Glenora to Marie Canyon) and look forward to that piece again as it was in great shape and certainly enjoyable.

    The TC Trail is a wonderful thing !!!

  • Hi
    Our sons Peter and Michael were born in Calgary 10 and 9 yrs ago. When they were born we donated to the trail in their names (having done our own a few years prior). We are living in New Zealand (our country of birth) at present and have the dream of cycling across the country of our sons’ birth to reintroduce them to Canada. We are planning this for 2010 and are greatly looking forward to this trip of a lifetime with our family and having friends join us on the trip.
    See you in 2010 :)
    Melissa, Simon, Peter and Michael, Queenstown, New Zealand
