Deciding on Trails is organized into three parts:
Part I examines the first 15 years of Trail Towns, beginning with the first multi-community program, launched along the Great Allegheny Passage by the Allegheny Trail Alliance and The Progress Fund. Part I also tells the story of how trail and community advocates in other places adapted the model and how your community can, too.
Part II focuses on actionable steps you can take to make the most of your trail by following seven best practices of healthy Trail Towns.
Part III brings the book to a close by considering how to navigate difficult times (COVID-19 included) and what may be in store for the future of Trail Towns.
