In many communities, trails are a critical component of multimodal transportation networks that support opportunities for safe, accessible, equitable, and comfortable active transportation. A 2022 info brief from the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) documented numerous benefits of connected trail networks and presented strategies for planning and developing trail networks that prioritize health, equity, and climate resilience. The recent Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Trails as Resilient Infrastructure Guidebook addresses the relationship between trails, climate change, and emergency response. During this webinar, panelists who developed these resources will share the latest research on the role that trails play in multimodal transportation systems and focus attention on the ability of trails to help address climate change by serving as resilient infrastructure. Following their presentations, panelists will participate in a facilitated discussion and respond to questions from audience members.
