Looking ahead 1,000 days and beyond, Governor Leavitt’s Office asked the Utah Division Parks and Recreation to evaluate establishing a program or legacy to assist and accelerate the development and improvement of both motorized and non-motorized trails and pathways throughout the state.
“As an Olympic legacy, I propose the creation of the Utah Olympic Trails and Streams System. The objective is 715 miles of premier trails, open to hiking, off-roading, horseback riding, and biking, and within a 15-minute drive of every Utah citizen.”
“These initiatives are worthwhile in their own right, but as always, there is the economic tie-in. It’s about quality of life. It’s about jobs being drawn to a beautiful, exceptional state.”
