The Cataraqui Trail

The Cataraqui Trail is a year-round, shared-use recreation trail. In spring, summer and fall it welcomes everyone from hikers to cyclists. In winter it is open to snowmobilers bearing a current Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs trail permit. Cross-country skiers are welcome to share the trail. We encourage all users to purchase an annual (Jan to Dec) $25 membership.

Friends of the Cataraqui Trail

The inaugural meeting for the Friends of the Cataraqui Trail was held on Saturday, June 15 at the Sydenham Branch of the Kingston-Frontenac Public Library.

Friends of the Cataraqui Trail (FCT) has been created to allow members and users of the trail to become more involved in activities and enjoyment of this beautiful section of Eastern Ontario.  Friends of the Cataraqui Trail advocates for the sustainability, enjoyment, stewardship, public use and promotion of the Cataraqui Trail and also assists the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority as a volunteer workforce for light maintenance and to monitor and report trail hazards and maintenance issues.  The FCT is replacing the current Cataraqui Trail Management Board.

FCT members are anyone who holds a paid-up annual membership.  Those with current memberships for the Cataraqui Trail are automatically members.  Memberships are available for purchase online through this site or at special events.

On June 15th eight members were elected to the founding FCT Board.  There are also 8 Board positions yet to be appointed by municipalities and related organizations.  The first meeting of the FCT Board will take place on September 26th.  The time and place will be posted prior to the meeting.  All members of the FCT are welcome to attend.
