Trans Canada Trail - Go the Greenway!

MONTREAL, June 21, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Trans Canada Trail invites all Canadians to Go the Greenway. This national campaign encourages trail enthusiasts across the country to visit greenway.tctrail.ca and let the rest of Canada know what their green trail represents to them.

"Greenways with self-propelled summer activities are enjoyed by millions of Canadians every day," says TCT President and CEO Deborah Apps. "They connect communities, they connect people with places, and they offer Canadians cost-effective places to exercise. We want Canadians to celebrate their greenway trails and share their stories with us and the rest of Canada."

Greenway trails are designated self-propelled, summer trails that create healthy recreation and transportation opportunities by providing people of all ages with attractive, safe, accessible places to bike, walk, hike or jog.
