3 in 4 U.S. adults want public walking, hiking and biking trails close to home.

Nearly half of all adults say access to these trails is extremely or very important. Millennials and residents of the western region of the United States are among those most likely to value trail access near their homes.

Each month, through a poll of 1,000 U.S. residents focused on park and recreation issues, NRPA Park Pulse helps tell the park and recreation story. Questions span from the serious to the more lighthearted. The survey was conducted by Wakefield Research.
