Hap Wilson first constructed trails, bridges and boardwalks as a park ranger in Temagami from 1977 to 1984, which included ontario's first old-growth hiking trail on Temagami Island.

Since then he has charted, mapped, and designed thousands of kilometres of cultural canoe routes and hundreds of kilometres of land-based hiking, ski and bike trails. He has been passionately creating trails with endless energy for private land-owners, world-class resorts, nature reserves and provincial governments across Canada. Hap is also an award winning nature writer/illustrator of 12 guidebooks and is an award winning photographer.

Hap is also the co-founder of the Toronto-based environment group Earthroots.

Currently, Hap Wilson sits on the National Committee for Trails in Canada, sponsored by Canada Parks and The Trans Canada Trial. Eco-Trailbuilders is currently researching and designing The Trans Canada Trail Link Water Trail from Thunder Bay to Manitoba.
