As the first phase of Millennium Trails, 16 National Millennium Trails were designated after an objective review of more than 58 nominations from public agencies, trail-managing organizations, and trail volunteer groups. First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and U.S. Transportation Secretary Rodney Slater announced the names of the 16 trails on June 26, 1999, during Rails-to-Trails Conservancy's Second International Trails and Greenways Conference.
In her preface to the announcement of the trails, the First Lady noted, "Through the Millennium Trails project, we are building and maintaining trails that tell the story of our nation's past and will help to create a positive vision for our future. The 16 National Millennium Trails that Secretary Slater designated today are all visionary projects that define us as Americans." Cautions for this Product:
