Our friends at KEEN Footwear continued to power The Great Trail app, which has garnered over 60,000 downloads so far. The app, available on iOS and Android devices, allows users to plan their journeys on The Great Trail. They were also among the sponsors for The Great Trail Treasure Hunt in 2018 and 2019.
Meanwhile, Clif Bar continues to support The Great Trail’s mission by providing funding for trailhead signage and Trail development across Canada. In addition, they donated prizing for The Great Trail Treasure Hunt and encouraged its athletes to experience The Great Trail for themselves.
We are very grateful to The Globe and Mail, which continues to support us with free monthly advertising space.
With the ongoing assistance of Esri Canada, Canadians and visitors have the opportunity to discover the Trail through our interactive online map. By donating resources to help build and run this map, Esri has helped us to build an invaluable resource of shared knowledge that helps to promote The Great Trail and to preserve this national treasure.
We were also pleased to welcome Globalstar to The Great Trail family! The company, which distributes the SPOT X 2-Way Satellite Messenger in Canada, sponsored prizes for The Great Trail Treasure Hunt and we are excited to collaborate with them on new initiatives.
