  • Accessibility to all residents and visitors;



The focus of the organization is the construction of a surfaced trail enabling all residents & visitors of Temiskaming Shores to enjoy the benefits of walking, strolling, cycling, jogging across the City on a safe and secure route. Presently the only venue for active transportation through out the community is the gravel shoulder of a roadway classified as Highway B where the speed limit for vehicular traffic ranges from 50 km/hr to 80 km/hour.  A connector of safe active transportation would be used by citizens travelling to work each day, children travelling to sporting activities, those wishing to engage in physical activity to better their health while enjoying the vista of Lake Temiskaming & it would encourage visitors to the area for the purpose of actively travelling this scenic route.  Most people are pursuing a healthier life style and the "free" pathway will promote physical activity, be environmentally friendly and best of all is available to everyone!
