Trail Uses Vary

August 4, 2009
In recent years in the valley there has been a growing  interest to see additional trails for hiking, walking, biking, roller-blading, wheeled-chaired access, skiing, and places for families and friends to walk side-by-side – some with strollers, some with canes, and some with Nordic Walking poles.   Physical fitness training gizmos are seen affixed to many trail users- heart-rate monitors with GPS (Global Positioning System) feeding satellite signals on their speed and location . Everyone has their reason for getting out on the paths which connect our communities. Some uses are very compatible on simple trails, others need a more specialized trail design. 

Many trails are located on private property – respect landowners’ generosity to provide these fun and useful resources by following signage identifying approved uses.  Remember that not all trails are designed to meet potential impacts from all uses.

 The Trails Alliance will continue to work with community leaders, local organizations, trails advocates and private landowners to improve the regional trail network, and where appropriate, seek to find more off-road trail opportunities for a variety of uses.
