DescriptionThis study was conducted as part of a larger multi-community needs assessment. Data from this study allows for the determination of support for a multiple-use trail system linking communities within the Soucook River Watershed Region in New Hampshire. This study also examines the relationship between support for trail development and community attachment. The results provide evidence that the level and direction of support for trail development depends on the measures that are used to determine such support, highlighting the need for continued research regarding appropriate measures of trail support and community attachment. This study will also provide practical information to land-use and recreation planners that will help them to more effectively communicate with local residents and community leaders regarding trail development.
