    Natural Environment Trail Strategy

    Singlesprocket has asked me to post this important document.

    It is the PDF file of the Trail Plan for the GTA.

    Saved for later reading. Judging from a quick skim of the first 40 pages, this looks like a great document.
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    For myself, the most interesting data were the tallies of informal trails (ie non-IMBA, non-MUP, non-COT) in 'good' versus 'degraded' condition. For the central Don, I believe it was 80+ km in good, 19 odd km degraded. Although the authors of the report seem to be either unwilling or unable to recognize the effort that resulted in 80+ km of non-IMBA trails in 'good' condition as any kind of positive achievement, I certainly don't share that view. The numbers tell the tale here. That's a very impressive result.

    The report gives cause for some concern about Dr. Quads.

    Thanks for your input Kay. Your concerns are valid and noted

    They state that the bike park at Sunnyside is scheduled for 2013. I don't see any kind of progress report. It is not a natural environment trail strictly speaking but it was sort of covered towards the end.
