National recreation trails recognize existing trails that
connect people to local resources and improve their quality
of life. Applications are based on diverse partnerships, and
more than 1050 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
from NRT program partners and funding opportunities, as well
as inclusion in the online NRT database.
For more information about the NRT program, including benefits
and application criteria, please visit the NRT web site hosted
by American Trails, our lead non-profit partner for this program, or
