Parks, Recreation and Trails Master Plan


Trails Trails play an important role in a parks, recreation, and open-space system. They are a vital component in providing connectivity whether it is linking one park to another, or linking a whole city to another city. They serve both recreation and transportation purposes at a local and regional level. The Trail System Map (Map 2), found on page 65 shows existing trails. Trails can come in many different types and may appear on the map as a bicycle or pedestrian route. As far as usage, they can generally be categorized as the following types: • Separated Trails – Separate trails and trail systems are provided for each type of user; for example bicyclist, pedestrian, skaters, etc. • Shared Trails – Trails are shared by two or more user groups but design parameters restrict the use of the trail by some groups • Multi-use Trails – All user groups occupy the same trail or trail corridor • Soft-surface Trails -Typically a beaten path or gravel surface in the woods No matter the type, the design of any trail should be modified accordingly to accommodate the expected user group.
