A TRAILSNext™ presentation
Using the power of GIS mapping to strategically target development of recreation access and new land protection opportunities to address gap areas.
|The Trust for Public Land seeks to create ready and equitable access to trails, parks, and open space for everyone across the country. The ParkServe platform and Access Impact Mapping (AIM) tools provide data to address issues around equitable access to these assets in cities and towns nationwide. The ParkServe platform provides users with nearly 130,000 park locations in roughly 14,000 municipalities around the country, with the ability to analyze current 10-minute walk access to those parks. Users can determine where future parks will provide the service to neighborhoods most in need.
AIM prioritizes the protection of new public lands and encourages recreational access improvements around the country by addressing broad recreation access needs and public lands access opportunities outside city limits. Using the power of Geographic Information System mapping, AIM helps to strategically target development of recreation access and new land protection opportunities to address gap areas.
Together these tools provide baseline information on demand for recreation access and the locations, type and use of nearby trails, parks and open space allowing users to gain insight into these community resources and enabling professionals to better understand and plan park systems.
This second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans provides science-based guidance to help people ages 3 years and older improve their health through participation in regular physical activity.
San Jose is developing a 100 mile trail network! View the handout!
This February and March, over 120 advocates virtually hiked the halls of Congress to call for action to protect and expand access for all to public lands and trails. These efforts, led by the Partnership for the National Trails System and American Hiking Society, developed a series of common messages and legislative priorities for the coming Federal fiscal year. We encourage all of our partners to download the Hike the Hill materials now to help build a common agenda for the entire trails community.
The following criteria are used in order to determine suitable locations for new trails and trail reroutes within the Kremmling Field Office, Colorado
