Excerpt from Trends, Vol. 16: Spring, 1979

Americans always have turned to rivers and trails for outdoor recreation and for release from the tensions of their busy lives.

Recently, however, people looking for such outdoor experiences have found too many of our streams have been dammed, polluted, or commercially developed. Secluded paths have become mere memories to many, as suburban sprawl gulfs our dwindling open spaces. Studies show that far more trails are needed to meet the needs of today's population, not to mention tomorrow's.

Recreation agencies, conservation organizations, and governments of all levels are beginning to realize that better measures must be taken to protect and manage our river and trail resources effectively. Two federal laws passed in 1968 - the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act and the National Trails System Act - paved the way in this area a decade ago. These Acts established national systems of rivers and trails and set up procedures under which new components could be added to each system. Still, progress was agonizingly slow until passage last November of the National Parks and Recreation Act which increased both systems dramatically.

Federal actions have been mirrored on other levels. Many states have set up similar programs within their boundaries. Local efforts, too, have grown more numerous and effective. Yet much more remains to be done.

In 1978, the National Park Service assumed new responsibilities in the protection and management of both rivers and trails. In January, Secretary Andrus charged the Service with the responsibility for conducting for the Interior Department the studies required prior to designation of rivers as wild, scenic, or recreational under the national system. Our responsibilities and opportunities increased again when the National Parks and Recreation Act added 17 new rivers to the study list and when we were charged with locating the routes and developing management plans for three of the five new trails authorized by the Act.
