About Us

The Partnership for the National Trails System (The Partnership) is the only nationwide, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the extraordinary value of American National Scenic and Historic Trails.

We envision a world-class system of National Scenic and Historic Trails that preserves natural and cultural values and provides recreational benefits for all. To realize that vision, our mission is to empower, inspire, and strengthen public and private partners to develop, preserve, promote, and sustain the congressionally-designated National Scenic and Historic Trails. Since 1997, The Partnership has embodied the collaborative spirit of the National Trails System Act as an advocate for the trails. Today, we connect member trail organizations, eight affiliates, and five federal agency partners to serve as a collective voice for the over 55,000 miles of trails within the National Trails System.
