"Promoting a trail network, including the Trans Canada Trail, which connects all Albertans"
Recognizing that trail environments foster physical activity and active living, Alberta TrailNet promotes the development and managed use of all types of trails in the interests of a broad range of user groups. Trails and trail systems provide affordable, accessible, multiuse recreation and transportation infrastructure, preserve green space and wildlife corridors, and offer opportunities to appreciate and learn about Alberta's diverse historical, natural, cultural and economic history. Trails support economic diversification and growth.
About ALBERTA TRAILNET SOCIETY
The Alberta TrailNet Society (Alberta TrailNet) was incorporated in 1989 as a charitable non-profit society. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, Alberta TrailNet is dedicated to promoting the development of a provincial network of shared use trails known as the Wild Rose Trail System. All provincial user group associations (Alberta Hiking Assn., Cross County Alberta, Alberta Bike Assn., Alberta Equestrian Federation, Alberta Snowmobile Assn.) are represented on Alberta TrailNet's Board. In 1994 Alberta TrailNet agreed to represent, and was recognized by the Trans Canada Trail Foundation as the provincial trail council responsible for implementing the Great Trail of Canada (formerly Trans Canada Trail) in Alberta.
