Overview

In 1968, Congress established the National Trails System Act to provide for public access, enjoyment, and appreciation of the nation's "open-air, outdoor areas and historic resources." Since that landmark law, twenty-two national trails and numerous side trails have been added to the system, totaling over 40,000 miles of trails across the country. This book is a celebration of the National Trails System. Inside you'll learn about the great events revealed by the system's historic trails, which trace the history of our country from its first Ice Age inhabitants to the struggle for civil rights. You'll wonder at the spectacular country traveled by the system's scenic trails -- and at the foresight of the trails' volunteer founders. Join American Hiking Society, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing, protecting, and maintaining foot trails in America, for this exploration of the world's largest trail network.
