John has been working to improve and raise awareness of the Trails in Fairfax for two decades.
These trails connect most of our neighborhoods with Downtown and open space. As an alternative to driving a car, they allow people to walk much shorter routes than taking the roads, get exercise and meet neighbors at the same time!
These trails are also important for safety. Most fatalities in wildfires involve people trying to drive out. Get to know a variety of trail routes around your neighborhood, so that in an emergency, you can choose to use one away from danger.
