CARTS (Central Alberta Regional Trails Society)
is a not-for-profit society, completely run by volunteers, that exists to provide information and support regarding recreational trail designation and development in Central Alberta.
While not a trail development group, CARTS supports local trail development groups by providing guidance and support throughout their development process.
CARTS is committed to an inclusive public participation process in determining trail designation and their development. This includes seeking endorsement from local municipalities, agencies, trail development groups and the general public.
