network. Representatives were from area municipalities, various trail groups,
Chamber of Commerce, Conservation Authorities, and individuals. This umbrella
trails group was renamed the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance in the spring of
1998. The Organization was incorporated in 1999 under the mandate provided to
it by the Province of Ontario and various Municipal Corporations
of Eastern Ontario (Goals and Objectives). Thanks to funding sources and
partners, the Alliance has completed an inventory of abandoned rail lines and
existing trails; involvement of landowners; an overall strategic Master Plan; a
management plan for future operation, maintenance and marketing of the trails
network; identified economic opportunities relating to trails and tourism; the
