One Map to Rule Them All

KSL reported earlier this week that Utah is currently trying to map all of its urban trails:

In particular, many of the trails along the Wasatch Front are already seamless and don’t stop at the geographical borders of individual counties. And users need an equally seamless way to access that information, said Scott Hess, a Davis County planner who runs the area’s trail committee.

Though the article draws mostly from sources in Davis County, a statewide effort would certainly include Provo and Utah County’s many trails.

And as I’ve argued repeatedly, Provo’s trails are among the region’s best financial assets; they improve quality of life, offer commuting options, and attract locals and visitors alike. Any resources devoted to those trails would consequently be a reasonable investment in future growth and stability.

Bicyclists use the Provo River Trail. The state is currently working on a plan to link various trails in Utah.
