An organization of community-based volunteers who assist and support community trail groups to develop, build, maintain, and promote a system of interconnecting Active Transportation and other trails in HRM.
In 1997, the Halifax Regional Development Agency commissioned the Regional Trails Report and five community groups began construction in 1998 according to the community development model. In 2000, HRM council agreed to adopt the community development model for all trail building and the number of groups increased to the present amount listed in this publication.
From St. Margarets Bay on the West to Musquodoboit Harbour on the East, the existing, planned, and concept trails cover all kinds of recreational experiences from wilderness, backcountry, rails to trails, and suburban and urban trails. Halifax Regional Trails Association (HRTA) meets monthly at locations hosted by different trail groups in HRM. A hike is usually planned before the meeting. Members are supported by HRM Real Property Planning Staff.
