…key factor in the development and planning of most trails is local, grassroots efforts: that is, the citizens who drive the local, state, and federal government to act. Everything from establishing the vision and need for greenways to defining specific trail corridors, to participating in the zoning process, to forming citizen coalitions, to developing guidelines for trail use and access should be within the abilities of each citizen. With broad-based support, the vision of a national system of trails can be realized.

•Trail opportunities should exist within 15 minutes of most American’s homes;
•The system should be made up of a combination of federal, state, local and private trails, with entities working together to make an interconnected system;
•Trails must be planned as part of the nation’s infrastructure as are sewers, utilities and highways;
•Planning for trail corridors and networks should be a grassroots effort to ensure there is adequate support for their development, management and long-term protection.
