Measuring success: performance targets for the regional trail network
How trails support the region's goals


Six goals steer the regional parks and trails network: economic vitality, environmental justice, health, safety, recreation, and all ages and abilities networks. But how will we know if we are achieving those goals with trail connections?

In June, the SACOG board provided feedback on the regional trail network performance targets. The performance targets build on the local plan analysis from 2020, outreach results from the 2021 public survey, and partner input and board guidance throughout the plan. Performance Targets for Trail Network Identification

Staff is using these performance targets to work with departments of transportation, public works departments, and parks departments to identify the network of trails that deliver regional benefits impacting transportation choice, health, quality of life, and transportation equity.
