Hello I'm new here.

I plan to travel in Canada for three months in early June and perhaps even area late may (that's what Marsha visa expires) long route of a thousand miles and even more but I won't really know until now seen 2 routes that match one the GDT and the other the TCT can I do part of it but I want to focus on the Rockies and wanted to ask about the GDT (because that's where the wind blows) and Canada at all.

What can explore dates assuming that I want to begin in Northwest Canada

Some certificates need to travel there?

Read Canadian site that sleep 7 nights in nature and in winter the rest need 14 cabins, I didn't quite understand what they mean and how this thing goes on confused me completely. If you can explain?

And if you need special equipment to peaks and along the route?

How to cope and how much influence grizzly bears on tour?

And nothing occurred to me and you can help me thank you.

Pretty amazing coincidence that week after checking on a remote trail especially as GDT two different people ask here on this forum.

First, then, next check the concatenating assignment a few days ago the topic really close there on Saddam link

Besides, I'm sorry, but I'm going to be ngitibi into making trails that you're talking about the season that you are talking about.

First of all, the Trans-Canada Trail TCT, by all I understand that Bill really sucks. About RAILS TO TRAILS I mean old rail line converted to path. Becomes perfect I guess would be the longest in the world. The problem with this kind of paths they not only hiking trails but also bike paths (and some cases even ATV trails, not sure in this case). For this bike is pretty perfect, because there is no rail line ups, or rounds, but normal gait tends to be pretty boring in 99% of cases that no sharp ups and no tricks.
The few places it gets quite interesting is the old railway line following the River winding (imagine the old line) then sometimes there are bridges and tunnels, but I don't think you could find more than a few tens of kilometers in a row (note, speaking in Canada, compared to emails in the USA). As a general rule, where the option is easy to ride, almost always more interesting. (Imagine thousands of miles dirt road)


On the other hand, what I wrote you something with a grain of salt, because it's been a while since I checked on the trail.

About the GDT.

I can write about all articles you wrote (and credentials are indeed big, expensive headache, and the main reason I haven't done this for if/when do for probably most ignore, because it's the only practical way to do this for), but that doesn't matter, if you insist on starting in Canada in early June. What to do but on the northern Rocky Mountains you can expect to find snow and lots of it, at least until mid-June, at the southern end, and the end of July at the northern end. Walking on snow in the mountainous topography of the rockit is hardly trivial trails marked and well-maintained (remember that trail is covered with snow so you can't see him) but for the poorly maintained as the GDT usually you lose the trail immediately. And this is without talking about the ice rink.

Of course, if all of a sudden you get most winter snowstorms catapult, with heat wave in may, might not be there, but the chances are not great.

Beginning in May and is not a good time to be out in Canada. In many places it is mud season with black flies, mosquitoes, and lots of mud. The only thing I was thinking about this time in Canada this may be cycling on well drained (not on Trans Canada Highway-traumatic experience it) or canoeing on one of Canada's longest rivers. Tell me the end of June and to discuss on the GDT

Ronnie,

You might want to read Jonathan Lynx on the GDT. I found it very useful in terms of planning. Including maps. What showdown? Who knows.

To open the concatenating assignment,
This is a very remote and desolate. Should held accordingly. Logistical problems. The need for fitness.

I would suggest finishing the route on Mount Robson and the kakooha Lakes.
Kakooha port options are very limited. And require a road walk some days.

In 2013. But I had the chance to put my hand on the book and read it. It's not bad at all. There are also several via Internet had stories away information. Plus several correspondences with buddy. Hans, a program that walk.

Two and a half years, in advance. I'm impressed ...

How are you going to deal with all the certificates? It seems to me a lot of headache.

I am now planning a veteran and I want to start planning my trip and I can hit it pretty much from early June and up like that even late June early July this option,

So if you can tell the date range in the "season" of the Western Canada including Canada and would really help me in planning the trip.

* By the way Rooney following topic that I brought thalti into the path of the GDT up. .. And he does look interesting.

You should plan on mid-July to mid-September. About the GDT.
Did a track? You should check if it is the right for you.

Ronnie, I have 10 years planning. Or even the rest of your life.
It's a question of time and money.

Yaron, you closed on Canada?
Just in the Northwest USA has similar topography trails maintained much better, with fewer logistical problems, with minimal or even no need for certificates. And cheaper out there in most cases.   Even Canadians complain that carries the longest trails they really don't.

I take it. GDT The second path is not so relevant to my opinion this section repeats what you wrote here (I got lazy holding edit everything).

The trail in Canada is the continuation of the CDT And is created by connecting of trails I have the manual and it's written by Dustin Lynxand I'm willing to lend (or others interested) read or for certain period maps are topographic guide but a kind drawings/graphs.

Http://www.rmbooks.com/book_details.php?isbn_upc=9781894765893

You can buy the book in Amazon

Http://www.amazon.com/Hiking-Great-Divide--Canadas-Expanded/dp/1894765893/ref = sr_1_1? ie = UTF8 & s = books & qid = 1295648043 & sr = 8-1

About the way I wanted to do the same in 2007 and advised me not to do it because it was supposed to be for. Stbera advice as incorrect. It's a tricky path in terms of logistics and cost precious walking (certificates, shipping packages, equipment, etc.). I almost didn't go, but he is amazing in terms of the crossing (including the well-known parks). So if you think twice before you proceed with your planning. Can you tell us what the paths go, what equipment you have etc?

From what I saw, and the schedule for walking are July and August, before snow problem.

Anyway, people who followed the path-touch them yourself from blogs of Hikers And when useful information.

First blog Chris Willet He went up the trail in 2004 there story line, information and updates for the time (refer to the first edition-not links above).

Http://cwillett.imathas.com/GDT/index.html

There are some amazing photos.

Link to blog Spirit Eagle This couple went off the trail in 2007.

Http://spiriteaglehome.com/gdt.html

And there are more up to date information and see what they write about the maps they recommend using GPS As a verifiable reference (at the end of the guide points GPS).

Another blog of Ant -Trippin Anthony Culpepper (Ronnie referred me to him) he left the road in 2005.

Http://www.trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?trailname=3422

There is also information about the path on Trailsforums As you see, rarely going, but you can get away and ask questions there are 79 posts in the former of which was written in 2008.

Http://www.trailforums.com/room.cfm?roomID=30

Http://www.gorp.com/parks guide/travel-ta-banff-national-park-hiking-camping-sidwcmdev_057378.html

This is another link for information. Chris Townsend wrote. This person is known in the field (in one of the forums called "mad Scotsman"). He was the first to cross the Canadian Rocky Mountains in 1988 (1600 miles) and wrote about this book as:

High Summer: Backpacking The Canadian Endless (journal, rather than a directory)

And here's a link to his blog:

Http://www.christownsendoutdoors.com/ (Of course that's not tied to a specific path, but just an interesting information, general education)

About the attached images: the first of two blog C. Willet, the third from Spirit Eagle(as you see in the picture that grizzly bears in and should act accordingly).

The dibide something like 30 times in about 850 km.

That's a lot. This hard path. If you'd rather choose something more just for starters.

There are lots and lots of cross-country skiing. There's even less what CDT marks.

I have maps of the GDT. Raise them later. Anyway you can get the maps also guy (very recommended for this) on the network.

The boy, what a relief. I even gave advice about the GDT and loose what that moron if my advice was the opposite.

Amnon-pictures that really belongs to me. I wasn't in the Rockies has been 4.5 years and always said to myself before the GDT will do all parts of Montana didn't (biterot mountains, parts of Marshall abov) has similar topography but logistics and much more. But these pictures do the GDT decision harder.

ALE if you also send me the link so I can appreciate it, Slobber on the map.

GDT MAPS

I hope now it will work. If you don't have power anymore.

Anyway I recommend finish again at Mount Robson. Which is also the highest point of all Canadians.

In the summer I'm big but Iceland next summer if someone wants to can organize GDT. There's still time. Start saving money.

See you there instead of maybe a HUMAN bar BOX? You put yourself out there against grislis? (Suggestion of someone on the PCT was sure that Grizzly pop coming to eat him. Although the PCT grislis. The fact that he was also sure Bigfoot was beside the other night he peed so. ...) Imtl 40566.9460416667
