Well it's kind of old news now but we are finally getting this on the front page...the webmaster has been in vacation mode. The US Department of the Interior and the United States Forest Service have designated Poston Trail as a National Recreational Trail...one of 10 trails in the United States receiving this title this year. Poston Trail is now recognized by the National Park Service as being a quality trail that contributes to health, conservation, and recreation goals in the United States. The National Recreation Trail Program is an independent advocacy organization that supports designated NRTs with an array of benefits, including promotion, technical assistance, a newsletter, email alerts, and networking. Its goal is to promote the use and care of existing trails and stimulate the development of new trails to create a national network of trails and realize the vision of "Trails for All Americans." A state-by-state index provide photos and details on featured trails. CLICK HERE to read the official press release and see the other great trails that were rewarded with this designation this year. This is a fine example of how even a small group of people with a common vision can achieve great things; we are very honored for the recognition we have received from Gaston County, the State of North Carolina, and now from the Fed.
So Poston Trail is now listed in the National Recreational Trails Database where more people can discover and come enjoy PASA's flagship trail!
