National recreation trails recognize existing trails that
connect people to local resources and improve their quality
Applications are based on diverse partnerships, and
more than 1200 trails have already been designated on federal,
state, local, and privately owned land throughout the country.
Benefits of NRT designation include:
- access to technical assistance,
- access to funding opportunities, and
- inclusion in the online NRT database.
