Climate change has had a significant impact on our environment—affecting various aspects of human life, including outdoor recreational activities. The impacts of climate change are affecting the quality and accessibility of multiuse trails and it is essential to take action to make these trails and greenways more resilient. 

Climate change is a contributor to the more frequent and intense natural disasters the country has been experiencing—such as storms, floods and droughts—which can negatively impact our trails and greenways. These events can cause erosion, washouts, landslides and flooding, making these trails and greenways unusable. 

Join Rails to Trails as we explore how trails around the country are recovering from these extreme events, and how they are working to becoming more resilient.
