This award is given in recognition of successful efforts to influence public policy relating to trail planning, trail protection, trail development, or maintenance.
Sue and Linda have been active trails advocates for over 20 years, involving themselves in hundreds of advocacy projects.
Sue is President of Pima Trails Association, and Linda is Chair of the Urban Trails Coalition. Both lead important local trails advocacy groups and have teamed together as a powerful unit to accomplish many outstanding achievements. They participated in the founding of Pima Trails Association in 1987, formed by equestrians who were concerned with the loss of trails to development in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains north of Tucson. Though both are equestrians, Sue and Linda are committed to helping all trail users get the trails they need and deserve.
