The Friends of Glengarry Trails Association (FGTA) is proud of the beautiful trail system it maintains in the Township of North Glengarry. These all season trails were originally constructed with the assistance of Federal and Municipal funding. The trails are now financed through the generosity of trail users, the memberships paid to the FGTA and fundraising events.

Private landowners have generously allowed the trails to be built on their property. The FGTA is aware of its responsibility to both the landowners and those using the trails. Many hours of volunteer work ensure that the trails are safe and  passable. In winter many of the trails are groomed for cross country skiing. Walking and snowshoeing are also popular activities. It is important for your safety and the wellbeing of the land owners that you stay on the trails.

The FGTA welcomes new members and volunteers.

Why not “take a walk on the wild side”: breath deeply of the fresh air, bask in the sunshine and treasure the diversity of the flora and fauna found on the Glengarry Trails.
