Trailheads are opportunities. More than a location for signs, they provide a place for gathering of people, ideas, and connections. Using the Violet Crown Trail’s Gaines Canyon and Zilker Park Trailheads as case studies, this session will investigate how trailheads reflect vision and and opportunities for involvement. They are destinations, transition zones, and avenues for community development. They provide the foundation for meaningful experiences that support our organizations missions and the sustainability of our projects.
