The OTN (Ontario Trail Network) Trail Segment is a geospatial database of Ontario's trail segments. The OTN contains networks
in urban, rural and wilderness settings managed by a named organization for recreation, active living or tourism purposes.
Examples of trails in the OTN include; Hiking, Running and Walking trails; Cycling and Mountain Bike routes; All Terrain
Vehicle, Snowmobiling and Dirt Bike trails; X-Country Skiing and Snow shoeing trails; Equestrian trails; and Canoe and Portage
OTN Trail Segment contains trail segments that define a linear corridor through the natural or urban environment. These corridors
may be single segments or form a looping system. One trail segment is distinguished from another trail segment within the
same trail by having different features. Linking the OTN Segment to the OTN Trailhead, trail segments are further defined
by the characteristics of a trail, e.g. trail name, length etc.
The OTN project is the combined efforts of trail organizations and three levels of government (Federal, Provincial and
Municipal) working to create a common and shared trail infrastructure which is composed trails and their descriptive attributes
across the whole of the province.
