Trails Committee

The Ramara Trails Committee was formed out of community minded citizens who wished to pursue a Trail system along the old CN rail line in Atherley. Since their inception this dream has become a reality and 5 km of Trail have been developed in the Atherley/Rama Rd corridor. The Trail Committee continues to identify ways to improve the Trail and new trail opportunities within the Township.
Committee members have a strong minded interest in Trail development and environmental procedures and serve for the entire term of Council.The Committee meets at the call of the chair or when funding applications need to be reviewed.
