As RTC has been working with our partners in our TrailNation communities over the past several years, we have been engaged in a specific menu of interventions to help drive trail network building forward in each place. We call this menu of interventions the TrailNation Playbook. Beginning February 2018, RTC conducted a webinar series on each element of the Playbook in an effort to provide baseline context on these efforts and terms before the TrailNation Summit held later that year in Milwaukee, WI. 

Learn from RTC’s D.C. TrailNation project manager on how to create a geospatial dataset to identify open trails as well as gap projects in each of the networks through mapping, and then analyze the current and future network to identify the highest level priorities for gap filling. Additionally, hear from RTC’s Baltimore TrailNation project manager on his experience in developing strategies for engaging communities and leveraging political, natural and economic capital to complete gaps in the network. This was the 3rd webinar in the series.
