The Island and Coastal region is well known for its natural beauty, spectacular vistas and wildlife.  It is no surprise that the development of a wide range of trails is playing a significant role in the development of the tourism market.  Well-developed trails and extensive trail networks contribute to the economic vitality of the Island and Coastal region and revenue generated from trail related recreation and sports activities provide substantial income and employment opportunities.  ICET has invested in a number of signature trail developments, ranging from multi-day adventure trails to fully accessible multi-purpose trails, with many now attracting international visitors.
