 Product Description

Hiking Canada’s Great Divide Trail (4th edition – May 31, 2022) by Dustin Lynx, is the definitive guidebook to the GDT and the ultimate resource for anyone planning to hike the entire trail or only a section.

Outlining the seven major sections of the GDT, the guidebook 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, Lynx’s pre-trip planning advice will also prove indispensable for long-distance hikers overcoming such daunting logistical challenges as resupply, navigation and access.

Fourth edition updates include new information, contemporary photos and trail details, a revised selection of alternative routes, and detailed maps to help hikers piece together the myriad of individual routes that form a continuous trail along the Great Divide. 

You can support the Great Divide Trail by visiting The Great Divide Trail Association.


About the Author:

Dustin Lynx hiked the 4300 km Pacific Crest Trail, from Mexico to Canada, in 1994. Shortly afterward, while browsing antiquarian bookstores in Vancouver and longing to be back on the trail, he came across High Summer: Backpacking the Canadian Rockies, by Chris Townsend. That book, more than any other, changed his life. Thanks to Townsend’s book, Dustin discovered the Great Divide Trail and moved to the University of Calgary so he could hike it in 1996 between the final two years of his arts degree. He currently lives in Canmore, Alberta, and operates an information technology consultancy. Besides the fourth edition of this guidebook, Dustin has written for several magazines, including Explore, and contributed to Imagine this Valley: Essays and Short Stories Celebrating the Bow Valley.
