2019 International Trails Symposium

American Trails hosts the 24th International Trails Symposium and Training Institute in Syracuse, New York April 28 - May 1, 2019


This biennial event hosts leaders in the trails industry from across North America and around the world. We host this exciting event because American Trails believes that trails, more than any other public amenity, have the ability to strengthen communities and connect us all to our happiest and healthiest selves. Through direct engagement, cooperation, and conversation with our fellow trail leaders, we can realize the value of trails to the human experience. Join us as we strive to make every stoop a trailhead.

The Symposium includes:

  • Numerous educational sessions covering a range of trail issues
  • Nationally and internationally prominent presenters
  • Learning credits via APA, ASLA, and NRPA CEU equivalency
  • Informative and interactive workshops
  • A state-of-the-art exhibit hall
  • The all new Trails Training Institute featuring the Professional TrailBuilders Association (PTBA) and other national trails training leaders
