Accessible Trails

Originally posted by Ontario Trails.

The Ontarians with Disabilities Act is proposing many changes in order to improve accessibility for persons with a disability. This includes such things as access to arenas, pools, banks, office buildings and trails. The Ontario Trails Council encourages safe and responsible use of all trails, by all, for all.

In the future we are looking forward to an environment that allows for as many Ontarians as possible to get out and get active. To explore trails and the great outdoors. The OTC respectfully reminds all persons to: trail smart, plan before you go, know your limits, understand the environment and your capabilities, and plan to return home safe and sound.
