After months of hard work and collaboration, we are delighted to announce that the Prescott Russell Recreational Trail (PR Trail) is now officially connected to the Trans Canada Trail (TCT), establishing a significant link in the world’s longest network of multi-use recreational trails.
“This achievement marks a major step forward in the development and promotion of our Trail as part of the recreational tourism ecosystem in the region,” added Eric Collard, Executive Director of the PR Trail. “Being part of the longest trail network in the world can only help our small slice of paradise,”.
By joining the Trans Canada Trail, the PR Trail now offers local residents and visitors an exceptional opportunity to discover the natural beauty and cultural diversity of our region while participating in an unparalleled outdoor experience.
“Stretching 28,000 km from coast to coast to coast, the Trans Canada Trail connects people to one another, to communities and to nature,” says Eleanor McMahon, President & CEO of Trans Canada Trail. “The Prescott Russell Recreational Trail – a boon for tourism and physical activity in Eastern Ontario – aligns so well with that mission; we’re pleased it is part of our national trail network.”
By becoming part of the Trans Canada Trail, the PR Trail is giving itself a chance to celebrate the richness of our natural heritage and the cooperation between municipalities, nature conservation organisations and volunteers who have made this connection possible.
We would like to extend our warmest thanks to everyone who helped make this significant milestone in the history of our Trail a reality, as well as to the outdoor enthusiasts who will continue to appreciate and respect these precious trails. The PR Trail is always ready to welcome walkers, cyclists, skiers, snowmobilers and all nature lovers for an unforgettable experience.
