Challenges of Shared Use Trails & How to Solve Them


In recent years, the number of people on shared-use trails has increased dramatically.

Walkers, runners, mountain bikers, horse riders, users of e-transport devices such as e-scooters, e-bikes, and even e-skateboards, are competing for space.

Shared-use trails deliver benefits to communities by encouraging a variety of users to get outdoors. However, they also create a range of challenges for land managers, trail managers and trail users.

In this webinar we explore the benefits, opportunities and challenges of shared-use trails and reflect upon what land managers need to consider before and after developing a shared-use trail.
