So as usual I tell myself to give a summary, but then invested when writing who has powers it.
Start and continue. Those who have questions then paddle.
gdt

Name: Bill watershed Canadian large (sounds stupid in Hebrew)
Advantages: very remote, wild cats, landscapes, many incredible challenges are primitive.
Disadvantages: very remote, wild, expensive, bureaucracy.

Some history: the original big is about 100 km and was created in the 1970s but not caught.
A decade ago, a guy named Dustin Lynx tried to revive the idea and route planner.
Same route of about 1000 km on average. Who wants to go it needs.
Dustin Lynx-hiking the gdt
Links to the blogs of some who needed information.
Give below. (Edit it how you want in the preferences later if you want).

Quality marks: hehehehehe!
Trail route quality: hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehe ...

Grads:
Up to 45 degrees. A steep trail and with amassing a very serious ups and downs
That try to dibide all the time. The owners of problematic knees to consider.

Rivers:
Cross rivers on a daily basis and many of them some are dangerous and need to think well.
In planning the route. Some are really dangerous.

Awesome track, through the parks:
Waterton Lakes, Banff
Kootenay,
Yoho,
And Jasper
; Akamina-Kishinena
Elk Lakes,
, Peter Lougheed
, Height of the Endless
Mount Assiniboine
Mount Robson
Kakwa lakes

But also very depending on the route you choose.

Arbitrary divisions:
The trail is divided into four parts. I will describe here South
To the North.
1. USA-Canada border up to Elk Lakes.
Starting from Waterton National Park with trails and regulated
Come to the cross country is a very difficult request to dozens of km. Includes climbing peaks,
Crossing rivers, difficult and expensive way 80 million times. This is the hardest section
That pass. Moving to relatively easy walking dirt roads and then connect to the fisherman's dibide. Unfortunately I have to part for most mining sites
Cases throw you off the field and see that the injured much.
Terrible. I built a travelers route goes over the Ridge, but avoiding all the disgust of the mines and get beautiful cats of days inventory.
Finish the section at the entrance to the parks of fire space Lockheed and elk Lakes.
The scenery in this section is awesome. You won't see people along the long days and therefore more cats.
This section is characterized by relatively high temperatures and dryness. Need to carry water in many sections. Still has a chance to storm and snow. The main problem these lightning storms: 00 p.m. this afternoon.
Difficulty level: moderate to difficult.
Length: 300-400 km depending on the route you choose.

2. Elk Lakes to Lake Louise.
Reached here 5כוכבים hotel of trails. Everything (almost) arranged with camping
And markup and well maintained. Simple pleasure. The disadvantage: large amounts of travelers and vacationers take camping. The eachs. Expensive and must sleep in the camping.
The beginning is hard and still need to go through the spray it's drainage basin. I had a problem and I had to make a detour. But it can be done, of course.
Of the clear and understandable and that the replicators easier. This section basically finishing the dibide that simply all become too problematic.
I chose to go to Lake Louise to obtain and that I should have to make a detour on giant fires because wild and part of the forward was blocked. Again because of flooding.
Difficulty level: easy to moderate
Length: approx. 200 km.

3. Lake Louise Gaspar
Unfortunately this summer the main asphalt road walk but very beautiful landscapes and much more scenic. As not all the more but going at the same time.
Difficulty level: easy
Length: 250-300 km.

4. Gaspar to kakooha.
Not the thing but from what I know so walking back almost without trails and the wet surface. The logistics involved are. You can find this information in the links.

If anyone went, so goes the cost here reported if he wants. I'm sure it will help others.
Difficulty level: moderate to difficult
Length: approximately 300 km without the addition of 100 km to reach the road from kakooha.

Comments:
Mount Robson can end and the north boundary trail option.
Anyway you are facing logistical and section I. The weather plays a role.
Big finish because no official anything. All continue North. Everyone chooses what he wants. I kind of lost interest after Lake Louise that don't cross the dibide. What does absolutely spectacular views. :-)

Some pictures:

Ooterton start

Her voice range views

There!!! Bill!!!! Now how the hell do you get there?

The worst haze early giant wild fires this summer.

The marks the original 1970s GDT. Only check this and two other under highlights means changing a single for Greece. (Like in Greece worth Taki:))

Curious friend on one of the walks.

Friendly fellow has a hobby here. (And encountered or her encounter was very fast, unfortunately)

Oh, fuck and Jack is the perfect combination:



Certificates:
Canadians really bother with permits and their orders.
Should the top camping sites in national parks.
In terms of payment so we need two certificates each is 70 dollars.
To value. First entry certificate and certificate is for.
The certificates are valid for one year and cover the costs. But still.
Should you book. Especially in waterton, Banff and
(Give a link below). At some point I gave up on
And I just showed on sites that you've already paid the pramit.
I didn't have a problem everywhere that law still says to notify in advance.

Season recommended:
Early July to late August. Can I have some before and some after depending on how much snow that year.

The track has a split personality between tasted great.
National parks for camping and the quality is amazing. Outside
The concept of a path does not exist.
Overall, it's a combination of existing trails, walks and a cross-country Highway to nail part.
About five or six people try to go it all every year. I heard some locals they saw company at first but I haven't met any of them. I guess it depends again on the route you choose.
Last summer were flooding throughout Western Canada which ruined lots of bridges and tunnels have delete trails that really changed their route and therefore it would take years to fix everything.

Summer fires and cause some serious hatoi be close at least when I went. A problem. I had to find other solutions.

And that is the first conclusion for all interested. Should be particularly dynamic
On this route. There are a lot of faults. There's a neat organization here behind the track. There are only attempts. The trail is very remote from civilisation and it is still possible to get along with.
The rate can range from 20 days (highways) and 80 days (slow).

Weather:
You'll be surprised but can be hot in prompts levels. I've had more days above 30 degrees rather than days. And still, the much older siditi
Know the lightning storms scare of Colorado. So it's almost constant mode on. Also going a lot above the tree line.

Difficulty level:
Hard to very hard.
Of the first cross-country (South to North) are really hard.
In the big dibide about 30 times the midpoint.
Many times climbing peaks and then go to passim and this is when you need to find the best path.

Confused a lot. Flooded areas and streams on a regular basis that matters. Should be ready for anything. There are a million ways, fragmenting, breaking away 4
On all fours. I would recommend taking ג"יפיאס.

Maps:
Big pepper maps have made and put them at the time. If anyone is interested then send me face him. Or tell me how to upload a large file to the Forum here.
These maps are nice, but you should have with you another set of maps for the Earl.

For access:
South: Waterton National Park.
North: mount Robson ג"אספר kakooha or or or where I decide.
End/start.
Big dibide's crossing ends just before the middle of the track in the Lake Louise area.
From there it continues on roads and walkways are regulated and very popular until arrival to Gaspar. And from there, luck:-) The business is in trouble.

בע"ח:
Grislis, black bears, moose, and generates and squirrels and all. Need to know which parts are currently barriers to people in some of the summer
Because there is a lot of activity in grislis. Another problem is that sometimes just shutting the area immediately and without time limit.
Because the bears decided to travel. Dynamism already. The problem is that you walk in the back door and areas in
The official then you have no idea what closed. That happened to me in the early days and really don't understand where did so many cats
One day there are no humans. Reset.

Well keep preferences later and also links to everything you need and supply points and more tips and suggestions for the route as I went.

Certificate details:

Big guys need 2.
1. Annual Discovery Pass
2Annual Wilderness Pass.
The first is a pass to national parks for a year. The second is backcountry camping in approval. Will save you a lot of money.
Each certificate costs about 70דולר Kennedy and are mandatory.
You can purchase them at every entrance to a national park in Canada. So if you start a South ooterton then no problem. If you start from the North.
Then you have other issues:-)

South-North or vice versa?
The vast majority, if there is such thing as this 5, discourage the Crown going South-North.
The benefits? Less snow, relatively easy access.
Cons- Killer inauguration of the hardest thing about the Joker.
He La Coulette Ridge. It's not that easy in the beginning, the North but it's really difficult thing.

Climbing slopes difficult peaks 5 cross country trail-free with free hard and storms of: 00 p.m. this afternoon.

Must do one day section because there's no place to sleep. Not just.
There are many sections of the track in a big way to know what good weather above the tree line.

Another thing you should know. Mosquitoes. And crazy just doses. Rather than a specific thing but all the time everywhere. And sometimes receive reinforcements of horse flies.
Come and network with spray head

A few words about bears:
As is well known, this cute bears and amazing you annoying or scaring him.
For all you country grislis. Need to hang your food a
100 metres from your tent. Here are some basic rules that I think are important.
I emphasize that this is only part of the opinion.
1. always hang your food, not just food but everything got smell. Toothpaste etc.
2. to speak specifically and especially twists and turns when line of sight is blocked.
3. There are people who take a whistle I say bad idea that marmots and produce hiss and bears may think you some tasty appetizer
4. don't sleep alashbil like PCT over AT. The trail is a highway of cats
And what about this you become a Taco with the home for the bear.
5. should I take spray cans have small bears for the Crown.
6. you should know the difference between black bears and grislis. The different behaviors and your response should be. It could save your life.
7. I think this is obvious, but I never get Mama bear to live.
8. do not sleep right next to a river or water source. You risk being a snack with a drink.

Here is an example of sorted food bag Sling camping in part.

Reach for:

South:
Fly to Calgary, Canada, where a four-hour bus to town called pincher Creek and then hitchhiked (hard) or a taxi and in 30 minutes you are at the entrance to ooterton.
After the entrance you want going up 7 to the border officer to meet the siditi and start right from the start. Some give up. I recommend the course.

You can also reach us through Glacier Park. I think without a car or somebody gets you that much more cumbersome.

North:
It all depends on where you start or finish if you want.
Lake Louise, Jasper is and will be.
Mt. ROBSON is a little more complicated. Or bus adapters or trust
About hitchhiking to Gaspar. The hitching isn't easy. All-area mtweir and expensive.
Which means, relatively young people and clean cars don't tend to stop.
If so, you already kakooha this problem. Or organize a sock (I'm not kidding) or prepare the walk more 90קמ dirt road until you reach the main road to shred. Enjoy:-)

Production:

You should buy the first days 1.5 can. Depending on your walking pace food days are between 4 to 10 or even 12 days. Not just. The food is as precious and should not be selective or just catch a ride to town to obtain. What's most likely to do. The problem is to go back to the point you left off.

The links I gave you have major supply points.

Costs:
This is not cheap and even trail. It is very difficult to be under the rule of the dollar. More like $ 2 per sq kilometre. But it sucks.
All of course depends on how you go. Towns and locales normally spend a lot of money. Especially all Canadians so be warned.

It is a good idea or not?
Hell Yes! This amazing nature trail and wild beauty. A very rewarding in that respect. But!!!
It's important for me to emphasize that this is not a course for beginners. And should better come fit it. Some even go short path ahead of it. Great physical difficulties, loneliness, distance and logistics. And many, many confused and finding solutions. Dynamism already said.

Highly recommend and source for the hard core of the company but also for anyone looking for an ordeal but provides.

I must have forgotten more things so if you have questions or interest or the bear know what then ask and try to answer.

Some instructions about how to handle an encounter with a bear:

With a little knowledge you can keep a bear from becoming a conflict encounter. Field take time to rehearse scenarios in your mind in advance. Sports tv say, "If the mind has never been there before, the body does not know how to respond."
The following is a list of recommended responses to minimize the likelihood of attacks and chances of injury or human:
* Make certain you have bear pepper spray at the ready and know how to use it.
* Always maintain a safe distance from teddy bears.
* Stay HAL.
* Password Immediately pick up small children and stay in a group.
* Behave in a non-threatening in a traditional manner.
* Speak softly.
* Do NOT make eye contact.
* Throw a backpack or other object (like a hat or gloves) on the ground as you move away to distract the animal's attention.
* Slowly back away, if possible. Keep a distance of at 100 yards using an.
* Do not run from a bear. A natural predator ag3610-running may trigger-prey attack response and a grizzly can easily outrun the world's fastest human.
* Don't climb a tree unless you are sure you can get at 10 ' from the ground using an before the bear reaches you. Many experts recommend against climbing trees in most situations.
* Do not attempt to frighten away or haze that is near or agrizzly bear feeding on a carcass.
* If a grizzly bear charges your first option is to remain standing and direct your pepper spray at the charging bear. The bear may "bluff charge" or run past you. As a last resort, either curl up in a ball or liene face down (flat). Leave your pack on to provide protection, cover your neck and head with your arms and hands. Do not attempt to look at the bear until you are sure it's gone.
* If a black or grizzly bear attacks, and if you have a firearm and know how to use it safely and effectively, Montana law allows you to kill a bear to defend yourself, another person or a domestic dog. If you do kill a bear in self defense you must report it to .FWP FILE within 72 hours.
* If you are armed, using a weapon on a grizzly bear does not guarantee your safety. Wounding a grizzly bear will put you and others in danger.
* If a grizzly bear attacks during the day, most experts recommend either curling up in a ball or laying face down (flat). Use your hands and arms to protect the back of your neck and face, and keep your backpack on for added protection. Do not move or make noise until you are sure the bear has left the area.
* If a black or grizzly bear attacks at night while you're in a fight back tent, aggressivelywith whatever you have available to use as a deterrent weapon or defensive. The bear may be seeking food rather ... than trying to neutralize a threat, so the fight back to show the bear you are dangerous.
* Report all encounters to your local authorities. Your report can prevent someone else from being hurt.

Some comments:
Bear don't want near you. They are afraid of humans and that.
If Grizzly shows signs of discomfort or 99.9%, so in effect of this to deter you from wanting to prey. You'll be surprised, but their menu is mostly vegetarian.
If a black bear attacking rather than panic or surprise or knows what it is no less dangerous thing is that when that attacker to deter Grizzly then should
Lie still wrapped. If a black bear attacking for no other reason then you should fight back. Because he wants to devour you. It is really rare but can happen if bear in starvation.
We are not on the menu but can be a daily special. And care bears.

I've learned a lot.

The Middle link is interesting and adds not only about the bears, but also about other sales tax.

Two YouTube links on my computer to other videos can be a problem for me.

Indeed this recommendation and built camping arranged. Should keep it too you just anywhere.

What worked for me was to get good water source around: 00 p.m. this afternoon. To cook there and then move forward another mile or two or more then you can camp. And again, I stress. Not for himself.

First of all thanks. I went almost everything with very strong pain. I have a problem more serious than inflammation but not something of permanent damage.

However, short preparation before could save me the pain. The extreme Patagonia normal life then was giditi. I learned my lesson.
