CARTS

(Central Alberta Regional Trails Society)

is a not-for-profit society, completely run by volunteers and representatives of member municipalities, that exists to provide information and support regarding recreational trail designation and development in Central Alberta.

Member municipalities include the cities of Red Deer and Lacombe, the towns of Blackfalds, Ponoka, Penhold and Innisfail, the hamlet of Springbrook and the counties of Red Deer, Lacombe and Ponoka.
 
While not a trail development group, CARTS supports local trail development groups by providing guidance and support throughout their development process.

This includes encouraging and facilitating the completion of the Great Trail (formerly known as the TransCanada Trail).
 
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.
