TRAIL SAFETY SURVEY

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy and the Circuit Coalition is conducting a survey to better understand our trail users and what makes them feel safe or unsafe on trails based on perceptions and past experiences (on and off the trail).

The Conservancy and Coalition are hoping to receive responses from people with a variety of backgrounds (age, gender, race, ability, sexual orientation, religion). Please complete and share the survey found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/trailsafety

Please direct any questions to Anya Saretzky: anya@railstotrails.org
