Trails provide places for people to exercise, provide reliable transportation routes, and support local business and tourism. Until now, those benefits to the Washington region have not been quantified.

The Capital Trails Coalition, in partnership with a team of experts, spent two years developing an impact report to quantify the economic, health, and environmental benefits of our region’s 881 mile multi-use trail network. The Washington DC region is uniquely positioned to have the best trails system in the nation.
