New law to protect, enhance Ontario trails system


Good news for walkers: the Ontario Government passed the Supporting Ontario’s Trails Act, 2016 yesterday. This legislation announced in a news release is designed to ensure the protection and enhancement of Ontario’s trails system.

According to the Province’s data, “Ontario has the second-largest trails network in Canada, with about 2,500 trails spanning over 80,000 kilometres that support recreation, tourism and active transportation.”

While the Province touts the economic and environmental benefits of this legislation, the health benefits are enormous too. The scenery and fresh outdoor air of Ontario trails inspire you to easily walk, run or roll for miles.  And you can choose whatever difficulty level and length of trail that best suits your needs.
