Equity and Experience: Celebrating Joy and Connections in America’s Neighborhoods
Across America, there is growing recognition that everyone deserves to be able to safely walk, bike and be active outside right where they live—and that close-to-home access to the outdoors is fundamental to our well-being.
In neighborhoods nationwide, community leaders, residents and trail advocates are coming together to envision brighter futures, and trails are at the heart of those plans. They’re working to deliver trails to more people, while reconnecting residents to new opportunities for joy, healthy living and economic vitality.
In this all-multimedia issue, Rails to Trails magazine takes a closer look at the leadership, public investment and community collaboration that is fueling efforts to create and connect trails—and bring this essential infrastructure to communities that have long been disinvested and under-resourced. Through these stories, we’ll celebrate the impact that these trail systems have, inspiring deeper connections between neighbors and to the outdoors.
