DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A national group that seeks to create and protect the country’s network of trails plans to bring its next international convention to Dayton.

The Dayton Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1kaNuvt ) that the California-based American Trails picked Dayton to host its 2017 International Trails Symposium because of the partnerships and variety involved in southwest Ohio’s trail system.

The biennial conference brings together trail advocates, managers, builders, planners and users.

Candace Mitchell, a communication specialist for American Trails, says the region’s access to cycling, mountain biking, hiking, backpacking and equestrian trails were factors that made Dayton the top choice.

According to the county’s Five Rivers MetroParks, the region’s more than 330 miles of paved trails is the largest such network in the U.S.
