Welcome to the Township of Manitouwadge's community engagement hub for the Multi-use Trails Master Plan project!

Residents and visitors alike are drawn to Manitouwadge for the pristine wilderness and great opportunities for outdoor adventure. The trails in and around Manitouwadge support four-season recreation to a variety of trail users.

The opportunity for multi-use trails tourism in Manitouwadge is considerable as the area has a variety of types of trails covering some 1000 square kilometres. Manitouwadge and it's surrounding areas are known for its snowmobiling trails, ATVing, downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking, hiking and wildlife observation, canoeing and kayaking opportunities. In light of this, the Township now requires a trails master plan which will build on completed trails planning work to identify new trail opportunities and enhancements. The master plan will provide the community with a blueprint for future trails projects for the Township and surrounding area.

Your input is a critical part of this process!

The ultimate goal of this initiative will be to support economic sustainability and community wellbeing for years to come in the Township of Manitouwadge. We need to work together to create an informed plan for a local and regional trail network that will serve the community and harness the Town's tourism potential.
