Government announces investment in New Brunswick Trails Action Plan

The province has announced an investment of nearly $16 million in the New Brunswick Trails Action Plan. 

The plan will see the development of 11 Signature Trails for multipurpose use, which includes motorized trails for ATV and snowmobile users, and greenway trails for hiking, cycling, and outdoor enthusiasts. 

Government says the Signature Trails are intended to become tourist attractions which capture the province's distinctive heritage, rivers, waterways, views, and topography.

Tourism, Heritage, and Culture Minister John Ames says beyond yielding economic benefits, the Trails Action Plan will also aim to enhance health and wellness for New Brunswickers. 

Government says the plan will elevate the province's trails by improving accessibility, safety, and overall user experience. 

The funding was provided through the Department of Tourism, Heritage, and Culture's 2018-19 capital budget.
