Enhancing Multi-Use Trail Safety: St. Lawrence Parks Commission (SLPC) & Elizabethtown Snowmobile Club (OFSC - District 1) Pilot Partnership Agreement
In an effort to enhance safety on the Thousand Islands Parkway Multi-Use Recreational Trail in winter months, the St. Lawrence Parks Commission launched a pilot project partnership with the Elizabethtown Snowmobile Club,, to create an OFSC snowmobile trail along the Thousand Islands Parkway Multi-Use Recreational Trail.
Snowmobiling has been allowed along the trail since 2014. Now, under the partnership, all snowmobilers are required to hold an OFSC permit and to follow OFSC rules.
ESC will provide trail marking and maintenance as well as trail wardening, making the trail safer for all users. Additionally, the ESC will provide grooming services during the winter months, creating a packed snow trail that is safe for walking pedestrians and other sport and recreation users.
