The Haliburton Trails and Tours Network Strategy- A Development Whose Time Has Come
Seen as a solution to the seasonal economic difficulties of areas such as Haliburton, the development of year-round tourist attractions has received much attention by planners and citizens. In 1991, many people in Haliburton focused on the development of a "first class, world class Trails and Tours Program" and this paper outlines the work behind such a strategic plan.
Goals and benefits of such a program are presented along with proposed stages in the development and suggested organizational structure. The main points of the consultant's report are given along with resulting revised perceptions of benefits. Specific barriers to the strategy are noted along with suggestions for a more expanded outlook. The report concludes with ideas for future research on the topic.
