Welcome to the Orlean Community Trail System
Who We Are
OCTS is a dynamic organization that provides new and long-term residents with opportunities to meet neighbors, to engage in fun and educational activities, and to improve the safety and quality of life for our community.
The Orlean Community Trail System (OCTS) is a grassroots, community-based organization begun in 2004 and open to all residents living within ten miles of the Orlean Post Office. OCTS strives to create an inclusive community, engaging with neighbors and local organizations such as churches, commercial and civic groups, and the Orlean Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department (OVFRD). OCTS organizes and encourages social activities, community improvement efforts, and assistance with neighborhood trails for riders and hikers.

OCTS Facebook is a powerful tool that helps bind our community together. The OCTS Facebook page provides daily updates on activities, lost and found animals, road and weather hazards, and recommendations for local service providers.
There have lately been several instances where comments have veered towards ugly, complaining, and personal, none of which supports our community. OCTS welcomes posts about things like:
Social, educational, cultural, health, and local charity fundraising events
Lost and found animals
Requests for new homes or training facilities for animals
Requests for recommendations for services
Community yard/moving sales and personal items for sale or give-away
Notices of road closings or dangerous conditions
The OCTS Business Directory gives local small businesses a place to advertise their services to the members of OCTS.
Business owners are not allowed to advertise on the OCTS facebook page but are allowed to respond to requests for recommendations.
Business owners may contact Molly Savage at email@example.com for inclusion or to update their information in the directory.
OCTS does not endorse and is not responsible for any of the businesses in the Business Directory.
