Blazing new trails and opportunities





Bringing together trail users, decision-makers and other stakeholders to enhance and protect recreational opportunities and economic development.


The largest trail association of its kind in Canada, Ontario Trails Council (OTC) promotes the development, preservation, management and use of recreational trails in Ontario.

Established in 1988 by a coalition of hikers, cyclists, snowmobilers and equestrians, OTC was incorporated as a registered charity in 1991, and relies on membership support to fulfill our mission.

OTC’s Trailhead Event Series celebrates trail success coast to coast, and our Annual Conferences showcase the best of the trail economy, trail activity, programs, services, marketing and communication.
