Trails create healthier places for healthier people…all across America.
Trails and greenways are often seen narrowly when it comes to their benefits. People tend to focus on the recreational or environmental aspects of trails and greenways, failing to see the big picture—the total package of benefits that a trail or greenway can provide to communities, including public health, economic and transportation benefits, and even the effect on community pride and identity.
Opening Day for Trails
This year marks RTC’s seventh annual Opening Day for Trails! On April 13, 2019, people across the nation kicked off the spring trail season by hitting their favorite trails for a walk, run, ride or special event. Check out how people celebrated and explored trails on Opening Day!
