Blaze your own Trail
Whether you are walking, running, biking, hiking, or riding horseback, it is helpful to use a marked trail. Trails often lead to interesting places. Design a trail for a community that you are familiar with. It could be your neighborhood in Highland Park, somewhere in Chicago, or a fictional town.
- Decide where to put your trail.
- Your trail must have at least 5 stops, and the distance to each stop.
- Decide how long your trail should be and how much time it should take to ride it
- Think about how to show distance on your map.
- Draw your bicycle trail on a sheet of plain, white paper or graph paper.
- Label your map. Include the total distance and the distance for each part of the trail.Mark points that are ¼, ½, and ¾ of the total distance along your trail.
- Include places of interest along your trail.
