THUNDER BAY -- the city boasts a fairly extensive trails network with more than 40 kilometres of paths throughout the area.
Four of the most heavily used are now part of a province-wide pilot project to gather the public's thoughts on what they like and don't like.
The city's parks division has teamed up with the Ontario Trails Council for the survey, which can be filled out using your smartphone. QR codes, which are bar-code like square symbols that direct users to specific web pages when scanned by a smartphone, have been placed along the trails on Centennial Park, Boulevard Lake, Chapples Park and Parkway.
If you don't have a smartphone or any other device that can scan QR codes, you can fill the survey out online.
Park Planner Werner Schwar says the 18-question survey is a good way to gauge the public's opinion of the trails network.

The entire project was designed and developed in Thunder Bay and is also being conducted in Norfolk, Ontario, on the north shore of Lake Erie.
