Presentation Title: Tale of the Trails
Presentation Description: We’re updating the Tale of our Trails – The Nation’s Largest Paved Trail Network. Based on the 2017 Trails Survey and Count and incorporating automated count data from multiple trail managing agencies, MVRPC has created a compelling story of the impacts of trails on our region – our exercise and health, our economy, and our draw as a destination. Learn how your own trail use is multiplied throughout the network, and how we can better connect to our trails with high-comfort, low-stress on street infrastructure.
