Each member structure of the Metropolitan Trails Network works to implement or maintain a Metropolitan Trail, to improve the hospitality of its territory, to develop editorial productions, and to involve communities of inhabitants and experts in the life of the Trail.

The development of metropolitan hiking and the proliferation of approaches have led the players in this urban innovation to come together to set up a network and tools from which new project leaders, the public and the territories can benefit.
The network's trails bring their audiences together and benefit from the network's influence at the national and international levels.
