Canada’s 15,000-Mile “Great Trail” Will Be the Longest Car-Free Route on Earth
There was a cross country course started in Canada in 1992 named The Great Trail. The trail is now 87% complete and it extends to a distance of 20,770 kilometers now, stretching across 13 provinces and territories ranging from British Columbia to Newfoundland. Tentatively, this will be completed in 2017 and the entire 24,000 kilometers will be the longest car-free trail on this planet.
