A comprehensive study has identified more than 167,000 miles of managed trails throughout Canada, a press release stated.
The study also details existing management practices for those trails as well as identifies them as either shared-use or single-use trails, with the latter being used for snowmobiling, ATVing, off-road motorcycling and other recreational purposes, according to the National Trails Coalition.
“The primary objective of this study was to gather data about existing Canadian trails and their uses in order to understand the big picture,” Terry Norman, national coordinator for the coalition, said in a press release.
