Despite vast expanses of green space in the Monteverde Region, local reserves charge entrance fees and lack extensive hiking options. The World Trails Network is working to create a free long distance trail system called the Sendero Pacífico to offer alternative hiking options and connect the Bellbird Biological Corridor. The goal of this project was to investigate urban trail development from Santa Elena to Monteverde and increase visibility of the Sendero Pacífico in the Monteverde region through promotional strategies. We learned about promotional strategies and techniques in the area and determined the physical aspects that could affect urban trail development in the area.
