The National Recreation Trails (NRT) Program recognizes the diversity of trails across America that connect people to local resources and improve their quality of life. This session will provide a brief history and overview of the NRT program, as well as highlight the growing benefits available to trail managers. Program benefits include promotion, technical assistance, networking, and access to funding opportunities. More than 1,000 trails have been designated on Federal, State, local, and privately owned land throughout the country.
