Business along trails: food and lodging


As trails become a familiar part of our urban landscapes, more businesses see opportunities. Places to eat and places to stay overnight are found along trails and greenways across America. These examples show how hotels, motels, restaurants, and cafes are promoting their business to trail users. While some adjacent land uses have concerns about trails being developed along their properties, hotels and restaurants see potential business. In particular, these establishments need signs and visibility to walkers, hikers, and riders. Some provide a walk or stairway connecting their business to the trail. The following examples show a variety of trail types and trailside businesses.
