We Spoke with Trail Users About Their Experiences – and There Were Giveaways!

Tim Leger

Our friend and Trail enthusiast Tim Léger was recently out on the Trail, meeting trail users along the Trail in Ottawa and Gatineau. Tim wanted to know people’s thoughts about the Trail: their favourite Trail sections, what it brings them, and how it fits in to their lifestyles. Spoiler: people love the Trail and use it frequently!

Here’s what trail users had to say

The Trans Canada Trail “has been a big help for me. I work from home, and I don’t live too far from here. So [the Trail] helps me get the exercise that I need.”

“It’s great to get some walking time in, and it’s nice to do it by the Ottawa River and have nature around you.”

“I used to work downtown for 15 years, and I would bike to work. I used [the Trail] as my active transportation network for years and years. So, it’s a big part of my life… it’s amazing that it’s being expanded and supported.”
