Northwest Territories

In 2019, we were thrilled to welcome the Hamar Mountain Trail to our network! This wilderness trail, which leads the way into Discovery Ridge, is named after Hjalmar Nelson Hamar, a mountaineer who spent five decades hiking thousands of kilometres across the Northwest Territories.

New signage along the Trail in Hay River, NWT

Wayfinding and interpretive signs have now been installed along this section of the Trail.
We also assisted our partners in Hay River as they widened their trail in order to allow more people to enjoy it, to make maintenance easier and to allow new spur trails to be built in the future. As part of this project, we helped to fund the installation of wayfinding signage.

New wayfinding signage was also installed along the Trail in Yellowknife.




Last year, we provided funding for the installation of new wayfinding signage with The Great Trail branding along the Whitehorse Copper Trail.





In the past year, we have worked with our enthusiastic partner in Nunavut on Trail development plans, which are set to be implemented in 2020.
Stay tuned!
