TRAILS -- It's hard to imagine why Alberta wouldn't want to promote one of the world's great trails through unmatched scenery.  Some Canadians have stopped wondering why and are regrouping to get the Great Divide Trail officially on the map.

Alberta seeks official recognition for Great Divide Trail
The nearly 746-mile Great Divide Trail runs from Waterton Lakes National Park on the Canada-United States border, follows the continental divide north and ends at Kakwa Lake Provincial Park in British Columbia, and Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resources Development is seeking a consultant to help get the entire length of the trail officially designated.
