I imagine the Appalachian Trail got its start in a similar fashion when hikers began to recognize the enormous potential of a continuous trail from Georgia to Maine.

While this type of system offers tremendous opportunity, it unfortunately takes a lot of time and energy to make progress. It is truly a shame how money and resources seem to always be found somewhere to build or expand highways, but things of this environmentally and economically positive nature require seeking "grant funding" and take many, many years to achieve.
