- NOTE SPECIAL DATE -- WEDNESDAY! Join GDTA members Kathy Platcha and Geoff Ellwand for an inspiring talk on the Great Divide Trail. The Great Divide Trail is a long distance hiking trail that stretches for 1,200 km from the US Border to Kakwa Provincial Park in BC, northwest of Mount Robson. It consists of a necklace of existing trails in national and provincial parks, joined together by hiking trails built and maintained by the Great Divide Trail Association, which takes hikers into some of the most spectacular scenery in the Rocky Mountains. This "crazy idea" started 50 years ago! The GDTA is a growing group of enthusiastic hikers and trail builders who love to help make some of the Rockies most marvelous natural jewels accessible to walkers. Photo: On the Divide, copyright Z.
