Crowding. Conflict. Controversy.

Trails weren’t built for this.

(and that’s why we’re here.)
Trails are Common Ground Logo

Trails are Common Ground is a coalition of people, businesses, and advocacy groups working together to create a safe, inclusive, and respectful environment for anyone who steps, rides or rolls onto any trail, anywhere.

Our approach leaves behind finger-wagging, blaming, and shaming in favor of resources that help people become better trail citizens and give communities and agencies tools to manage and improve their trails.

We promote inclusivity and positivity

to create a welcoming environment on the trail instead of an intimidating one.


We share knowledge in a kind manner

to model what appropriate trail use and behavior looks like.


We improve trails and trail systems

so more people can participate and enjoy trails.
