Trails provide an open, safe space for recreation, education and physical activity, and a place where the landscape is preserved.

Otonabee Conservation acknowledges and appreciates the support of local municipalities, community groups and agencies, and local businesses working in collaboration for the 2019 International Trails Day events.

International Trails Day – the first Saturday in June – is dedicated to the celebration of trails, their values, uses and the healthy lifestyle they encourage. The special day also affords the opportunity to recognize those who build, protect and maintain trails and broadens the constituency of trails, encouraging co-operative efforts among different trail users.
