EXPERIENCE NATURE CLOSE TO HOME
Imagine beginning your morning with a refreshing walk on a gorgeous nature trail. On your stroll you hear birds singing, see the glorious sun shining, and enjoy the beautiful indigenous plants flourishing along the path. For many, taking a nature walk such as this requires getting into their car and driving to a local trail. However, some developments now integrate stunning walking trails right into their community plans. Neighborhoods that incorporate such walking trails add value to the development both financially and in terms of livability. With integrated trails, residents can easily and affordably enjoy their environment and benefit from healthy living.
Moving into a community that includes a walking trail in its plans just might increase the value of your home. Neighborhoods with walking trails have a higher “walk ability score” than those without. Studies across the United States have consistently shown that when developments get higher walk-ability scores, it increases their property value from 1 to 6 percent. In addition, a hiking trail in the community may also make a property more appealing to purchase and therefore easier to sell for current owners because trails are considered a “lifestyle enhancements.” However, the financial advantages of walking trails in a development aren't the only reason to move into a neighborhood with a nature trail.

From bike rides to laid-back hikes, nature paths provide a way for people to get out and do something adventurous—right in their own backyard.
