Americans are seeking trail opportunities as never before. No longer are trails only for the ‘rugged individualists’ pursuing a solitary trek through breathtaking wilderness … users include young people and senior citizens, families, individuals and organized groups, people with disabilities and the physically fit.

•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.

.…a trail is a linear corridor, on land or water, with protected status and public access for recreation or transportation. Trails can be used to preserve open space, provide a natural respite in urban areas, limit soil erosion in rural areas, and buffer wetlands and wildlife habitat along waterways. Trails may be surfaced with soil, asphalt, sand and clay, clam shells, rock, gravel or wood chips. Trails may follow a river, a ridge line, a mountain game trail, an abandoned logging road, a state highway. They may link historic landmarks within a city. Trails may be maintained by a federal, state, or local agency, a local trails coalition, or a utility company.

The creation of a true national system of trails begins with all Americans in their own backyards—in neighborhoods and communities, in churches, schools and social organizations, in cities and towns, in every county and state.
