The Kawartha Green Trails Alliance
The Kawartha Lakes Green Trails Alliance is a not for profit organization whose mission is to promote a compatible system of sustainable trails within the City of Kawartha Lakes for the benefit of all residents and visitors. The organization seeks to be a voice for self propelled, active trail opportunities. Along with our Alliance partners we seek to improve personal health and the local economy by promoting walking and cycling opportunities for residents to encourage active lifestyles. Through the volunteer efforts of our Board of Directors and members our vision is to have the City of Kawartha Lakes become a better place to live by improving cycling, walking, jogging, running, in line skating opportunities and accessibility for the disabled.
