2022 Recreational Trails Summit

Summit Overview

NVRC hosted the Northern Virginia Recreational Trails Summit on October 20th, 2022 to explore regionwide priorities and needs for greater access and connectivity between parks, communities, and trails in Northern Virginia. Through presentations and roundtables, over 60 local, state, federal, and community partners came together to discuss access to funding sources, support for communities through the development of connected trail systems, the status of the region’s data and mapping efforts, and other regional opportunities for collaboration. 

Overall, the summit was able to serve as a critical foundation for advancing the growth of new and existing partnerships as well as projects that can result in a safe, connected trail network for Northern Virginia. The priorities and next step actions identified through the event will serve as the basis for future collaboration and planning efforts for Northern Virginia trails, including a meeting for regional recreational trail planning to take place at least once a year moving forward.
