The Lochiel Street trailhead on the Glengarry Recreational Trails in Alexandria, Ontario, now sports an observation deck where bird watchers and trail enthusiasts can enjoy the view of Mill Pond and the surrounding area.

The Friends of Glengarry Trails Association is proud of the Glengarry Trails, a beautiful all-season 15 Km recreational trail system in the heart of the North Glengarry Township.  Located in Eastern Ontario, about 1 hour from Montreal or Ottawa, and 35 min from Cornwall, the Glengarry Trails vary in length and difficulty, and are accessible all year round.

The trails are nestled in a Natural Heritage System which encompasses wetlands, woodlands, watercourses, wildlife habitat and agricultural lands.  Ecosystem services maintain rich biodiversity where rare flora and fauna are found.

Constructed in 1999, with federal and municipal funding assistance, the Glengarry Trails are now financed and maintained through the generosity of volunteers and trail users. The FGTA sells memberships and holds fundraising events a couple of times a year.

We appreciate the support of our partners: North Glengarry Township, Raisin Region Conservation Authority  and landowners through which the recreational trails pass.
