The Friends of Glengarry Trails Association is proud of the beautiful recreational trail system it maintains in the Township of North Glengarry. These All Season Recreational 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.
2023 News: On September 25, the North Glengarry Township passed a resolution concerning Township land on both sides of the Garry River in the region of the Garry Fen near Lakeshore road. The results will provide further protection for wildlife habitat there. We are grateful for the recognition of the value of the trails and the Friends of Glengarry Trails Association through the Township’s response to our concerns.
Private landowners have generously allowed these recreational trails to be built on their property. The FGTA is aware of its responsibility to both the landowners and to 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 well-being of the land around you that you stay on the trails.
The FGTA welcomes new members and volunteers.
Why not “take a walk on the wild side”? We invite you to breathe deeply of the fresh air, bask in the sunshine and treasure the diversity of the flora and fauna found on the Glengarry Trails.
We express our appreciation of volunteers and board members for their contributions to the FGTA and its activities during the last year. We appreciate the support of our partners: North Glengarry Township, Raisin Region Conservation Authority and the owners of the lands through which the recreational trails pass.
