Here's the toolbar you need to enable:

The 'Analysis' toolbar looks like this:

Third button from the left is the one you want. When you select that command, you'll get a running display in the lower right of the screen that reads the lat/long (or UTM coordinate, depending on what projection/datum the map has been authored in) of wherever your cursor is, like so:

***Edited to add:
For simplicity's sake, I think I'm going to use a geographic (lat/long) datum for all of these maps instead of UTM coordinates. Many - if not ALL - of the trail sections run across 2 utm zones in one day. There are only a handful of 'regions' to this map set and 14 UTM Zones across Canada. I can imagine that changing your coordinate system on a daily basis would get a little tedious, not to mention confusing if you forgot one day.
