With all the sunshine we decided to stay indoors and redesign Trail Canada! The new website is designed to be easier to navigate and switch between related sections.

Trail Canada has more than just a fresh new look... we have more than 200 new destination guides, more photos, better maps and much more to enjoy.

One of my favourite bits is the add a photo feature. Now you can submit your photos of Canada. We’ve already had hundreds of submissions so give it a try.
