The Post Athens. (September 25, 2019) Baileys Trail is helping ecotourism in Southeast Ohio. Retrieved November 11, 2019, From, https://www.thepostathens.com/
In Ohio, the construction of the Baileys Trails, an 88-mile long trail, will provide a much-needed boost in travelers and ecotourists, stimulating the economy. Currently, Ohio is already a rather popular place for ecotourists, due to incredibly beautiful scenery and healthy ecosystems. The construction of the trails will only serve to continue and further this. The trails will likely be used primarily for biking, one of the most popular recreations in Southeast Ohio. In addition, it has been petitioned for local Colleges and students to participate in the planned and care of the project in order to further their learning in the industry.
I believe that the construction of these trails will offer up practically nothing but positives for both the people in Southeast Ohio and the environment. While it is true that the construction of this trail will inherently bring with it, more human presence in animals habitats and the construction of the trail will mean some minor flora and habitat destruction; ultimately the positives of the increasing environmental protection spending and the populations’ awareness and appreciation for nature and all its ailments outweigh these. All in all, the students will gain a deeper understanding about the subject they have chosen to study, the trails will bring in money for the locals, and the environment will be healthier and cleaner a win-win-win situ
