Mission Statement

America has 11 National Scenic Trails, but after 60 years only the Appalachian National Scenic Trail has a right-of-way set aside for posterity. The other 10 trails have gaps subject to closure and dangerous road-walks. Many have access problems. Hiking Trails for America (HTA) has been formed to support permanent protection and continuity for all National Scenic Trails and to educate the general public in the use of foot trails for walking, hiking and backpacking.



Learn more facts by ordering my book “Broken Promise” today and joining us in our mission to close the gaps in our national trails by signing our petition for a congressional oversight hearing.
