The 5E's: Experience

Experience: Master Trail Planning which incorporates ecological, social and trail sustainability while providing the recreational Experience Albertan’s desire.

  • A Master Recreation Management Plan should be developed for each Public Land Use Zone (PLUZ);

  • In developing the Master Plan, Recreation Groups should be consulted for input on desired experiences, destinations and favourite activities within each PLUZ;

  • Recreation Groups should have the opportunity to participate in the planning process through providing inventories of desired trails and waypoints of favourite destinations;

  • A master plan will include a measurable target for the number, length, and intended use of trails in the planning area. This will include a measurable target for trail ‘Seat Time’ or distance in kilometres (KM); and

  • Connections to staging areas, transportation corridors, camping facilities, and inter-connection between Public Land Use Zones should be well designed within each PLUZ.
