Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #130 – February 20, 2016



The establishment of a nationwide system of trails will be an accomplishment worthy of a place beside other major conservation programs…The fundamental objective of a nationwide system of trails is to provide simple, inexpensive recreation opportunities for all people by having an abundance of trails for walking, cycling, and horseback riding near home, as well as providing some major historic and scenic interstate trails of national significance.

—STEWART UDALL, US Secretary of the Interior (1961–69); 1920–2010, in testimony, March 6, 1967
