Rim Country Trails

Why is this important?

This planning effort is born from the "all hands, all lands" collaborative approach. It recognizes the need for a collaboratively built, comprehensive regional look at trails planning across the Rim Country area. This effort is only successful with input from all trail user groups, and relevant decision-makers.

What do we aim to accomplish?
