Topic: Trail Towns: Cultivating Community through Hiking

Many long-distance hikers love trail towns for the food, beds, and showers, but what do trail towns love about the hikers and the trail? Beyond the economic impact of hikers spending money in the communities, what benefit do trail towns receive from these trails? Whether you're a community leader, trail advocate, or simply interested in the dynamic relationship between trails and towns, join us for this event where trail tourism expert Amy Camp will offer valuable knowledge and inspiration for leveraging trails to enhance community life.
