Trail Building Tool Kit
Welcome to the Bruce-Grey Trail Network’s (BGTN) Trail Building Tool Kit. This resource is for anyone who is seeking information and resources on developing recreational trails.
During the growth of the BGTN, many questions about trail issues arose that could not be answered by a mere ‘click of a button.’ In some cases it took days to find a key contact person or hours of web browsing to finally get the answers we were seeking. Noticing the need for a one-stop resource page for those interested in trails, we compiled all of our collected information and contact names onto this site to help you get a head start on trail building in your community.
One has to realize that each recreational trail built will be unique in its own way. Area topography and demographics will play a huge role in determining what kind of trail uses will be involved. As well, each trail committee will have distinct ideas and visions of the final trail plan. The BGTN Trail Building Tool Kit may be used as a basic guideline only to help your trail become a reality but keep in mind more specific details such as insurance, trail building, and community members involved will vary from area to area.
Like BGTN, the tool kit will be an ongoing project as new ideas and concepts continue to evolve. We therefore recommend checking the site periodically for updated resource information.
