Regional Survey Asks: How Do You Trail?

HowDoYouTrail 4-panel

OLYMPIA, Wash. – Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC) is seeking input from the community on the update of the Thurston Regional Trails Plan. The plan will outline strategies to coordinate the long-term operation, maintenance, and expansion of a trail system that will link to communities both within and beyond our borders. TRPC is asking, how do you trail? Whether you’re a resident, business owner, or visitor to the region’s trails, you have insights that can guide the planning process.

Do you use our region’s trails? Do you trail alone, or in groups? Do you trail to relax in nature or to get your heart pumping and get in a workout? Maybe you trail as you commute to work or for a quick trip to the store. Take the survey to share how you use trail and what could be done to make them work better for you. The survey is open now through March 12. 

Visit to take the survey.

TRPC is an important partner in the transportation planning process. As a council of governments comprised of elected officials from cities, the county, tribes, Intercity Transit, school districts, colleges, and a variety of local government special districts, TRPC offers broad representation to decision making on regional transportation priorities.

To assist the region in fulfilling its long-range transportation planning goals in both the urban and rural areas of Thurston County, TRPC has authority to program discretionary federal funds to transportation projects, programs, and services that serve local communities.
