The Association Plein Air Shediac/Shediac Outdoors Association Inc. (APASOA) has the purpose to build and maintain non-motorized nature trails in the town of Shediac and to promote their use.
The trails developed by the APASOA are multi-purpose trails to be enjoyed for walking, hiking, trail running, snowshoeing, mountain biking, or fatbiking.
The trails are designed according to IMBA’s (International Mountain Biking Association) principles of designing and building sustainable trails. Among other elements of the philosophy of IMBA, this means the trails are developed while making every effort possible to ensure the protection of the land by minimizing impact to the environment and protection of the people through a safe infrastructure.
The APASOA is a volunteer-led non-for-profit organisation.
