About the Network

The World Trails Network (WTN) strives to connect the diverse trails of the world to promote the creation, enhancement, and protection of outstanding trail experiences. The World Trails Network brings trail associations, trail advocates, walkers, hikers and people passionate about the outdoors together from around the world to foster global collaboration and networking for the betterment of the world’s trails.


World Trails Network’s immediate priorities are to:

  • Continue to host the biennial World Trails Conferences – taking place since 2010, that brings trail organizations together for learning and peer engagement, encouraging a robust and healthy international trails industry.
  • To support and capacitate our International Trails Task Teams to deliver relevant and impactful projects for trails around the globe.
  • Continue to champion our signature International Friendship Trails programme.
  • To motivate for and establish a global World Trails Day.
