Portrait picture of Sarah Jackson

On a journey that took her from Victoria, B.C., in 2015, to St. John’s, N.L., in 2017, the courageous 24-year-old from Edmonton, Alberta, arrived at Point Zero East of the Trans Canada Trail on May 30.

For Sarah, who grew up in Edmonton, outdoor adventure wasn’t a central theme in her childhood but, after hearing about the Camino de Santiago from an uncle who had taken the trip himself, the idea of a long-distance hike stuck with her. After university, looking at a stretch of commitment-free time ahead of her, Jackson jumped at the chance to make it happen and took up the challenge of conquering the Trail.
