Friends of the Cataraqui Trail Want to Hear From Trail Users

The Friends of the Cataraqui Trail are seeking the opinions of area residents and visitors who use the trail. The purpose of the survey is to help them understand who is using the trail, where they live and what they do on the trail. 

The Friends are also seeking input on where the Trail needs improvements and what improvements are desired. This information is valuable to us in many ways, not least of which is helping to secure grants to aid in the improvement and maintenance of the trail.

The survey can be accessed at the following link:

The Friends of the Cataraqui Trail advocates for the sustainability, enjoyment, and stewardship of the Trail. The Friends group supports the public use, promotes the Trail, and assists Cataraqui Conservation as a volunteer work force for light maintenance.
