road to trail conversion

Sep 2, 2013, 2:31 pm

It was tough work, but we spent our Labour Day long weekend in Fundy National Park, assessing trail, and assisting Parks' staff with some high level trail system design.

Glamping in the Parks' new Otentik platform tents. After a few days of rain, we were certainly glad that we weren't in our little tent!

Many communities adopt and use old legacy trails or forestry and mining roads to extend their trail networks. Some of these old road beds are not always suitable for trails since when they were initially built water management and recreational use was not part of the design. There are, however, ways to manipulate old road beds into beautiful singletrack. Road to trail conversions are becoming more popular, especially in parks and other ecologically sensitive areas.
