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.
The Friends of the Cataraqui Trail advocates for the sustainability, enjoyment and stewardship of the Cataraqui Trail. The Friends group supports the public use of the Trail, promotes the Cataraqui Trail and assists the Cataraqui Regional Conservation Authority (CRCA) as a volunteer work force for light maintenance and to monitor and report trail hazards and maintenance issues to the CRCA.
The Cataraqui Trail is part of the conservation lands of the Cataraqui  Region Conservation Authority.

Sorry for any inconvenience.Our next meeting will be at the regular time October 26th at 7 by Zoom.  

Thank you to all the volunteers that made our Trail Maintenance Day such a success!
