The Park to Park Trail Association was incorporated on June 6, 2001, however the idea of having a regional trail network dates back several years earlier. During the summer of 1998 the Park to Park Steering Committee met for the first time, following the recommendation of both the Parry Sound and Huntsville Town Councils. Since that time Park to Park has worked to develop, build and maintain trail across the 10 municipalities between Killbear and Algonquin Provincial Parks. Since 2003, 100% of the trail route has been registered by municipal councils, and in 2011 the final section of originally envisioned trail was completed.
The Park to Park Trail is a truly collaborative initiative, bringing together trail users, businesses, non-profits organizations, clubs, as well as, local, provincial and federal governments to create a region-wide amenity. The Park to Park Trail network includes trail sections of historic rail beds and colonization roads, as well as newly developed trail, and road sections. We are a multi-use trail network, welcoming trail users on foot, bicycle, horse, dog sled, dirtbike, snowmachine, ATV and UTV. Some sections are limited to non-motorized users, so please check out “Get on the Trail” to see what uses are permitted for each section of trail you wish to use.
