Recreational Trails Program Database

Our Team

The RTP Database is funded under contract with the Federal Highway Administration through the Recreational Trails Program (RTP).

KMS Enterprises, Inc.

KMS Enterprises, Inc. (KMS) was awarded a multi-year contract by Federal Highway Administration to develop and maintain the RTP website and database on September 27, 2012. The initial database was composed of approximately 13,000 records. In the years since that first contract award, the KMS Team's work has resulted in a database that now has more than 21,000 records of projects/trails in all 50 States and the District of Columbia. This database is available to the public on the RTP website along with Annual Reports and an image library that showcases selected RTP projects/trails. A multi-year follow-on contract to continue this work was awarded to KMS and its team members, American Trails and Arch Systems LLC, on March 8, 2017.

KMS is a woman-owned, minority-owned, veteran-owned, small, and disadvantaged business. Their core business areas include website design, development and maintenance; organizational process improvement; and Information Technology (IT) services, such as project management; quality assurance (QA); and training.
