Your Liberal government announced the New Brunswick Trails Action Plan in St. Stephen, with an accompanying investment of $15.78 million.
“The provincial government recognizes the importance of trails to economic
development, particularly in rural areas. Beyond yielding economic benefits,
the Trails Action Plan will serve to enhance health and wellness
for New Brunswickers.” – Minister John Ames
The plan includes the development of 11 Signature Trails for multipurpose use, including motorized trails for ATV and snowmobile users, and greenway trails for hiking, cycling, and outdoor enthusiasts.
Signature Trails will focus upon product innovation with the intention of becoming tourism attractions which capture the province’s distinctive heritage, rivers, waterways, views, and topography.
Trails have increasingly become tourism products. With over 20,000 kms of developed trails in New Brunswick, the Trails Action Plan will elevate the province’s trails systems by improving accessibility, safety and overall user experience.
