Trail of the Month

Colorado’s Animas River Trail

Read Feature

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.
