Trail – An established path, track or other route intended to provide recreation and access to public or private lands. This includes hiking, mountain bike, off-highway vehicle, horseback riding and mixed-use trails.
Recreation – Any activity performed during one's leisure or free time. Recreational activities are often done for amusement, enjoyment or pleasure.
Developed – Trails are considered developed when a new trail is constructed on a previously unoccupied site.
Improved – Trails are considered improved when an action is taken to enhance an existing trail for the benefit of outdoor recreation. Actions to improve trails include constructing bridges, improving stormwater drainage, and trail grooming. Adding new amenities like signage, kiosks, and interpretive displays also qualifies as an improvement action.
|Accounting Period and Scale|
Information for this PM should be entered into the EIP Database by the implementing entity’s project manager within 30 days of completing construction on the project. Projects taking place over more than one year should report the miles of bicycle and pedestrian routes paths created or improved by December 31st of each reporting year. EIP managers will begin compiling reported data in October each year.
Accomplishments for this PM should be reported separately from the Miles of Transit Paths Created or Improved PM accomplishments. The differences between these two PMs are outlined below:
The reportable unit for this PM is miles of trails. Singular actions impacting less than 500ft of a recreational trail should not be reported. For example, moving one large rock from a trail would not be reported. However, if moving that rock was part of trail grooming project that impacted whole segments of the trail, the length of trail improved should be reported. Similarly, new trails should only be reported if they are greater than 500 ft in length.
