Thank Your Rep. for Supporting Recreational Trails


Since 1991, the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) has helped states and local communities create and maintain thousands of miles of trails we all enjoy, all across the country. But funding for RTP has not kept pace with increased demand for trails and the outdoors.

The bipartisan Recreational Trails Full Funding Act of 2021 introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives would fully fund RTP to at least $250 million—more than double current funding—to help states and local communities build and maintain more trails.
