Hiking Canada’s Great Divide Trail (second edition) 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 six 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.
Unfortunately the guidebook is out of print and increasingly difficult to find in stores. A digital Kindle version is available online.
A new edition of the guidebook is under development.
