Kawartha Trans Canada Association (KTCTA) As a registered not-for-profit organization with charitable status our mission includes the following:
1. To improve the urban and rural environment by developing and maintaining a recreational trail or greenway linking communities.
2. To organize and participate in environmental projects designed to preserve and protect flora and fauna.
3. To educate and increase public awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the environment by offering courses, seminars, conferences and meetings and by collecting and disseminating information.
4. To promote active and healthy lifestyles by offering courses, seminars, conferences and meetings, and by collecting and disseminating information on the Trail's five core uses - hiking, walking, cycling, horseback riding and snowmobiling
The KTCTA will upgrade, develop and manage 44 kilometers of trail through the City of Kawartha Lakes. This trail stretches east to west between Peterborough County and the Regional Municipality of Durham and will be a new addition to the national Trans Canada Trail Network.
