You can make a difference with a financial contribution.

While the efforts of many people gave this community rail trail life, the need for ongoing fundraising is real. Now that the trail is complete, every financial contribution is applied to trail operations. Without sustainable financial support, trail maintenance and enhancements are jeopardized. Kawartha Trans Canada Trail Association as a not-for-profit organization manages the trail, and they now need your help.

Benefits of supporting the trail are many and vary greatly. The trail offers educational, recreational, and historical values. In turn, those features offer opportunities for learning, enjoyment, and reflection. Its appeal is wide-ranging and far-reaching as a destination attraction for visitors and residents. The Kawartha Trans Canada Trail is a valuable stretch of the world’s longest trail and supports our local economy.

The Kawartha Trans Canada Trail promises to serve our community and welcome visitors for years to come. Please use the trail and support it. Donations will be recognized on our website, with donations of $100 or more recognized on the Fred DeNure Donor Wall at Fleming College. All donations above $20 will receive a tax-deductible receipt.
