Abstract

Princeton, Massachusetts, has faced challenges negotiating with private and government entities to develop a town-wide connected recreational trail system. This project provides a detailed strategy guide for the Princeton Open Space Committee to overcome these challenges and develop future trails in Princeton. To achieve this, we conducted a GIS analysis of existing trails, consulted with key stakeholders to determine trail building regulations, and interviewed 11 local trail planning groups to determine best practices for trail standards and maintenance plans. Based on our findings, we provided a comprehensive trail map and recommendations to advance future trail projects.
