Canadian Trails Study: A Comprehensive Analysis of Managed Trails and Trail Uses


This study provides an overview of all managed trails in Canada and an analysis of the most important development during the past decade for Canadian trails: the investment by the federal government of $25 million in recreational trails through a partnership with the National Trails Coalition. This study also documents as accurately as possible the current trail inventory across Canada and it reviews existing management practices for trail development and maintenance. It also examines the differences between single track and shared use trails as well as urban and rural trails.
