The Recreational Trails Program, first established in 1991 and then reauthorized as part of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), returns a portion of federal gasoline taxes generated by non-highway recreation to the states for trail-related purposes. American Trails and organizations across the country are working together to build awareness and understanding of the RTP, to support its effective implementation and to help ensure that it receives adequate funding.
