Trail Master Plans establish a framework for future trail development within a jurisdiction or across a network of jurisdictions, ultimately creating connections between different trail networks, providing equitable trail access and filling in critical trail “gaps” within the trail network. The need for Trail Master Plans are generally first envisioned in more general planning documents such as a comprehensive plan or Livable Centers Initiative Study. Keck & Wood has collaborated with a number of clients on trail master planning, development and implementation.
Through physical inventory and assessment of existing conditions, public surveying and mapping, trail analysis, and corridor identification, the KW Team provides trail prioritization and mapping, design recommendations and standards along with plans and trail policy recommendations.
Residents of cities, towns and communities need places to recreate, exercise and enjoy nature. From the design of new improvements, to performing complete inventories for master planning, Keck & Wood helps to identify existing and future amenities to enhance recreation offerings for residents and visitors. From this work, clients and our team can develop a series of project suggestions to determine how best to utilize their capital funds, or provide guidance for future facilities
