Step Forward in New Socks to Support the Trail


Put two feet forward and support the Trans Canada Trail

Show your love for the Trans Canada Trail by picking up a pair (or two!) of custom-designed merino wool hiking socks!  

Not only will you look and feel great on your next outing on the Trail, but you’ll also be supporting its continued development and maintenance across the country. 

Working with the team at the Great Canadian Sox Co., a proudly Canadian company, we’ve created a pair of socks that are designed to keep your feet dry and comfortable during outdoor activities – perfect for you or any Trail lovers in your life! 

Wander the Trail with warm feet

The socks are 75% merino wool, made in Canada, and feature a mesh top so they’re breathable and lightweight. They’re perfect for all four seasons! 

Don’t wait – 20% of the sale of each pair supports the important work of Trans Canada Trail. 

Note that free shipping is offered with an $85 purchase, otherwise shipping rates start at $12 and vary by province or territory.
