BENEFITS OF A TRAIL
Trails help improve
Trails can be associated with higher property value, especially when a trail is designed to provide neighborhood access and maintain residents’ privacy. Trails, like good schools or low crime, create an amenity that commands a higher price for nearby homes. Trails are valued by those who live nearby as places to recreate, convenient opportunities for physical activity and improving health, and safe corridors for walking or cycling to work or school.
Trails help improve and physical and mental health.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), studies show that physical activity reduces the risk of major health concerns, including strokes, type 2 diabetes, and some forms of cancer. The closeness of our ties to our neighbors, the strength of our personal relationships, and the resources present in our communities are also all related to health.
