A TRAILSNext™ presentation
Rails-to-Trails is embarking on a coast-to-coast trail system!
|Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is embarking on a mission to connect the United States with a coast-to-coast trail system - the Great American Rail-Trail. We will work with states, counties, and cities to fill in gaps between existing trails to create one continuous trail from Washington, DC to Washington. This presentation will highlight how this project originated and outline how we are identifying and planning to fill the trail gaps, as well as build excitement around the recreation, health, transportation, and economic opportunities the trail will offer! |
Learning Objectives: Attendees will learn how they can get involved in the excitement behind the Great American Rail-Trail, including planning to fill trail gaps if they are involved in a project along the route, lobbying for the trail’s completion, or preparing to use the trail for a great adventure.
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.

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.
