Trails promote physical activity, fitness, and health. Studies in association with The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that 64 percent of the US population is clinically overweight, with more than 31 percent considered obese.
This condition is directly tied to lack of physical activity resulting in increased heart disease, cancer, diabetes, anxiety, depression, and other costly health problems. Regular physical activity can lower rates of obesity and health care costs.
