GDT Great Divide Trail--Trail Crews

Since 2004, AWA has teamed up with the Great Divide Trail Association to run summer trail maintenance trips on the Alberta sections of the Great Divide Trail (GDT). The GDT is an informal 1200 km trail, running along the Continental Divide from Waterton National Park on the Canada/US border to Kakwa Lake, north of Mount Robson in B.C., covering some of the most stunning landscapes in the whole of the Canadian Rockies. It passes through 6 National Parks (Glacier, Waterton Lakes, Banff, Kootenay, Yoho and Jasper) as well as the Willmore Wilderness Park, White Goat Wilderness Area and numerous other protected areas, including and Mount Robson and Mount Assiniboine Provincial Parks.
On these multi-day trail maintenance trips, volunteers carry out a variety of work, including bridge building, trail re-grading and clearance of deadfall.
