This research is part two of the Nebraska Rural Trails Project, a multi-year research program designed to provide assistance to state and local trail managers and developers by documenting the impact of Nebraska’s developing trail system. In this phase of the project, mail surveys were used in rural areas to learn more about the trails’ impact in several areas, including usage patterns, public safety, property values, and community quality of life. Three rural rail-trails (the Cowboy, MoPac East, and Oak Creek) in Nebraska, and one (the Wabash Trace Trail) in western Iowa were included. Extensive information on household demographics and trail usage patterns was also collected.
