Trekking the Continental Divide from the U.S. border to Kakwa Lake is a demanding adventure. In this revised and updated guidebook devoted to Canadas 1,200-kilometre Great Divide Trail (GDT), Dustin Lynx helps hikers piece together the myriad individual routes that form a continuous trail along the Divide.
Outlining the six major sections of the GDT, Lynx breaks the trail into shorter, more attainable segments and thoroughly describes the terrain and condition of each. Not only are these trail segments invaluable for planning shorter trips along the GDT, Lynxs pre-trip planning advice will also prove indispensable for long-distance hikers overcoming such daunting logistical challenges as resupply, navigation and access.

“The GDT doesn’t exist as a formal, signposted trail, and anyone who has attempted to hike this route knows about the massive amount of research and preparation required before setting out. I hoped to write a guide that would simplify trip planning and mitigate some of the headaches associated with ceaseless route-finding.”About the Author:
Over five months in 1994, Dustin Lynx hiked the Pacific Crest Trail, 4,300 kilometres from Mexico to Canada. During that time, he walked a marathon distance each day. Two summers later, he hiked the GDT. Now, as a father of two children, Dustin is busy walking the fulfilling path of parenthood, but he continues his forays on the GDT from his front door in Canmore, Alberta.
