Connecting past to present and water to land, this year’s breakout sessions cover a wide range of topics. Addressing trail development from funding to design to marketing, 2020’s breakouts will provide valuable insights and information. Not only will you learn the steps to bring a trail to life, you’ll also get the chance to interact with people who have “been there, done that” are eager to help you avoid making similar missteps. Our breakouts have been scheduled in a way that allow you to create your own personalized tract tailored needs.
Most importantly these sessions will show you what your trail can become and the impact it will have on your community. One session will address sharing trails with electric vehicles and how those interactions are a large part of the community’s identity. Another will discuss historic trails and using them to connect communities across the southeast. Sessions like these touch on how the uniqueness and needs of a community impact their trails.
The Georgia Trail Summit has a special format that allows it to make the most of its two days. Day one is filled with outdoor experiences called mobile workshops. Mobile workshops offer attendees the chance to get outdoors and experience a local trail.
As trail lovers, we know how important it is to get out onto trails and recognize the benefits of being in nature. This year we offer a variety of workshops that participants to hike, bike or paddle their way through Augusta.
