Trails are an integral part of a transportation system. They bridge wilderness and civilization. A good trail system is connected, well-marked, interesting, and provides for a variety of recreation and commuting experiences.
Not all trails need to be formal. This brings up some quintessential questions for transportation: How much overall mobility do we need or want, how much of the Earth do we need access to, and to what degree do we formalize that access and mobility with infrastructure?
