9 West Houston Trails Master Plan Energy Corridor District National Park Service/ Rivers, Trails & Conservation Assistance Program Goal # 1- West Houston Trails Master Plan Goal # 1 is to identify current shared-use trail systems within a 6- mile radius of IH-10 and SH 6 that are located at least in part within natural resource conservation areas and provide outdoor recreational opportunities. This goal would also prioritize the future connectivity between these shared-use trails/ park systems and increase recreational opportunities by providing additional opportunities for bike-to-work commuters. Decreasing motorized vehicle commuting would increase resource conservation through reduced fuel consumption and lessened infrastructure demands thus improving the quality of life in West Houston.
