American Trails hosted its 24th International Trails Symposium April 28 - May 1, 2019 in beautiful Syracuse, New York.
Trails professionals and enthusiasts from around the world gathered for a weekend devoted to learning, networking, and celebrating trails.
We host this 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.
Thank you to all our sponsors who made the symposium a success! Thank you to Diane Banta for these photos!

America’s incomparable system of national scenic, historic, and recreational trails is the perfect way to sustain your mental and physical health, while maintaining the social distancing that is required in these challenging times.
Encouraging different types of users to share the trail is just as important on urban trails as it is on backcountry trails.
Mileage can be marked off on signs, posts, stones, or stencils on the pavement.
One of the most difficult trail facilities to accomplish is a crossing of an active rail line.
