Great Divide Trail Association


The Great Divide Trail Association (GDTA) is dedicated to the vast, wild and beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountain wilderness, through its commitment to the Great Divide Trail (GDT). The GDT traverses the heart of The Mountains for over 1100km (700mi) along the Alberta/British Columbia border, criss-crossing the Continental Divide many times. Snow and glacier capped peaks, rushing creeks and rivers, cascading waterfalls, fir forests, turquoise lakes, wildflowers, and gorgeous expansive high meadows and passes are all here in vivid techni-color. As are their furry inhabitants - bears, marmots, elk, deer, caribou, moose, etc.; and not so furry inhabitants - porcupines.

The GDTA promotes, maintains, and preserves the GDT to further the appreciation and protection for future generations, of this vast mountain wilderness. Activities include trail maintenance, partnerships with other stewards of these mountains, outreach, education, newsletters, website, events open to the public, and a wealth of hiker available information to enable successful hikes on the GDT. Over a hundred members volunteer their time to accomplish this.

The GDTA is a Canadian non-profit corporation.
