Trail building projects can be large in scope, and expensive and time-consuming to complete. Partnering with government, businesses, other trail groups, and organizations such as TrailNet and its partners is a good way to share resources and will help achieve successful results. Partnerships are also looked on favourably by grant funding organizations. TrailNet can provide advice and assistance to groups interested in exploring partnership approaches and opportunities.

This partnership project received funding from multiple sources that, along with the work of local volunteers, enabled the bridge to be built in record time.
