Public trails open a beautiful, forested natural environment to the public on a year-round basis.
Who can use the TRAILS?
- Any member of the public can use the trails.
- Trails vary in difficulty. Some are suitable for families with young children. Others offer greater challenges.
- Trails can be used year round for walking, hiking and snow-shoeing.
Environmentally sensitive trails fulfill the four tenets of conservation:
- Preservation: they protect the land by ensuring that people are able to use it without damaging
- Education: they are “living labs” for the education of our youth.
- Research: they provide access to biologically diverse areas.
- Recreation: they provide a venue for healthy recreation.
