    Description

    Trail users seem neglected. Trail systems are limited, largely relics of fire control rather than designed for recreation; and total trail miles are probably declining. On the other hand, participation in various kinds of trail-oriented recreation is substantial and growing. Most activity is for short periods of time close to participants' homes. A varied and diffuse trail system, with an emphasis on opportunities near urban areas, is needed. The research base for planning needs to be strengthened.
