Encouraging that HR 5797, “The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) Full Funding Act of 2020” be included in the transportation reauthorization bill currently being drafted
With no new National Recreation Trails (NRTs) designated in 2019, and the deadline for 2020 National Trails Day fast approaching, we are encouraging Secretary Bernhardt to uphold this tradition of honoring and celebrating our nation's trails and designating new NRTs. Please read and share our open letter.

Recently American Trails conducted a survey of the trails community to find out how this pandemic has impacted trail projects, funding, volunteer work, and more. We also talked to trail users and medical professionals to get their perspective on what they would like to see from the outdoor recreation industry in response to COVID-19.
Help the trails community demonstrate its ability to put America back to work and deliver the benefits of trails to all communities.
