Bringing trails together from around the world.

About the World Trails Network

The World Trails Network is a global non-profit association committed to the sustainability and enjoyment of the world’s trails for all people, through a powerfully engaged international network of organizations and individuals g

We are an internationally representative association of the world’s leading trails and trail destinations. In essence, we are a trail tribe.

As a globally active network of diverse and engaged trails, we each work in our own regions to further the interests and sustainability of trails for the benefit of all.

We are a registered non-profit association in Switzerland and the United States of America. As a volunteer driven organization we are dedicated to the promotion, preservation and enjoyment of trails around the world.
