Huronia Trails and Greenways/Simcoe County Trails
The safe and responsible use of trailsThe organization was founded in 1992, following the recommendations of a Simcoe County Greenways study, which suggested that abandoned
raillines be kept in the public domain and be developed as recreational corridors. Our organization lobbied for the preservation of those corridors, and the development of a comprehensive trails network in Simcoe County.
As an organization, we value:
- The inclusiveness of all user types wherever possible
- The involvement of all stakeholders in achieving our mission.
Simcoe County Trails is locally also coordinating the development of the Trans Canada Trail in Simcoe County.
Huronia Trails and Greenways was incorporated and received charitable status in 1998. HTG changed it’s name to be Simcoe County Trails in January 2013.
We receive program funding from foundations and through government grants, but our operating cost is dependant on funding raised from our Help Trails Grow vehicle recycling program. Click here for more information.
