Recreational use of rivers and trails can bring new visitors to nearby communities. This guide is designed to help leaders in these communities take advantage of the economic opportunity that rides or walks into town. It will help you transform your town into a more inviting and memorable tourist destination, and in the
process, make your town a better place for your own residents to live, work and play. Trail Towns will take you through an organization process; help you work with or create a local group focused on downtown revitalization; give you the tools to identify what your town needs to become a Trail Town; give you ideas as you start your town’s revitalization; and give you tips on how to make your hard work last over time.
