In 2012-2013, through extensive data collection and community engagement, the City of Toronto developed a Natural Environment Trail Strategy that identified the opportunities, constraints, planning policies and management strategies required ensure the protection of the City of Toronto's natural areas while offering safe and enjoyable recreational opportunities for all natural environment/dirt trail users. These trails are well-used by hikers, dog-walkers, joggers and mountain bikers, and are highly valued as an important part of the recreational trail network.

The Natural Environment Trail Strategy will help guide and inform future trail planning initiatives that will assist in the protection of the City of Toronto's natural areas.
