Which trails are most popular with children?
By Stephanie MascaroThe Washington TimesPosted Apr 13, 2018 12:48AMA new report from the National Parks Conservation Association finds that children enjoy more off-road trails in the U.S. than adults.
The organization, in partnership with the National Park Service, surveyed 1,000 adults and children aged 13 to 17 and found that children enjoyed 14 of the 25 trails most frequently while adults enjoyed five trails and adults enjoyed four.
The trails most popular for children included: the Cimarron River Trail, the White Oak Trail, The Stairway to Heaven Trail and the Wildwood Creek Trail.
The most popular adult trail for children was the White Ridge Trail, a 10-mile, 6- to 8-mile loop that starts and ends at the Black Hills State Park in western Colorado.
The White Ridge is the only trail to connect the Black Mountains to the Colorado Plateau.
Other popular trails for children were the Little Black Mountain Trail, White River Trail and The Black Rock Trail.
Trails with fewer than five people, and trails that are too short for children, were the only trails for adults to enjoy.
For adults, the trail most popular among children was: the Colorado River Trail.
This is the same trail that connects the Black Mountain to the Plateau and the only way to reach the Black Rock, the report found.
A more recent survey by the National Trust for Historic Preservation found that trails for adult children were: The Black Mountain Road Trail, Big Stone Gap Trail, Black Rock Ridge Trail and Little Black Hole Trail.
Children enjoyed most off-trail trails, the study found, with most trails being used by adults.
In addition, trails for kids were used more often in winter months.
In winter, trails used by kids were the most popular in the eastern half of the United States.
In the western half, they were the least popular.
The White Ridge trail, for example, is the longest in the western United States, the survey found.
The trail also has one of the longest trails in California, with a loop of 8.4 miles and four turns of the entire trail.
The Little Black Rock trail, the last of the Blackrock Trails, is a small, winding, 1.6-mile-long loop in the Black Rocky Mountains, with one turn of the loop.
The loop is about a quarter of a mile wide.
The Rocky Mountain Trail has a loop that goes almost 4,000 feet in length.
Its length is about 7.5 miles.
The trail in the west is the one that gets the most traffic, with more than 3,400 people taking the White Rock Trail through the mountain each year.
It has two turns, the longest of any trail in California.
Trail users were also the most satisfied with the overall condition of the trails.
The trails were in good condition, with only a handful of issues identified, including graffiti, debris and litter.
The study found that a majority of people reported a positive experience with the trail, with the majority of those saying they enjoyed the trails as a place to play.
It was also found that trail users were more likely to report being satisfied with their experience.
The report said that the national parks and forests serve millions of people and that children’s enjoyment of the parks and natural resources is a significant source of tourism dollars.
