Walking, hiking, and bicycling are simple pleasures within the economic reach of virtually all citizens. Horseback riding, even though increasingly expensive for urban dwellers, is available to a large portion of Americans. Opportunities to enjoy these basic activities have become increasingly limited for the American people as the society has urbanized and as economic development has preempted areas which had earlier been devoted to outdoor recreation areas. Today, with more leisure time and with rising amounts of disposable income available for recreation users, more and more Americans are seeking relaxation and physical and spiritual renewal in the enjoyment of the traditional simple pleasures.

Trails represent a major opportunity to satisfy the demand for outdoor recreation. By their nature, they afford a low-concentration, dispersed type of recreation that is much sought after today. Trails are the means to some of the most beneficial kinds of exercise—walking, hiking, horseback riding, and cycling. Trails enable people to reach prime areas for hunting, fishing, and camping; they lead to areas prized by students of nature and history; they are used by artists and photographers; they help to satisfy the craving many people have for solitude and the beauty of untrammeled lands and water.

The changing population characteristics of the United States point to a multiplying demand for outdoor recreation opportunities of all kinds. An expected two-fold increase in the number of people by the year 2000 will mean at least a three-fold increase in the demand for recreation according to the O.R.R.R.C. (Outdoor Recreation Resources Review Commission). Trails, with all other forms of outdoor recreation, will be in short supply unless adequate facilities systematically are provided.
