The American Discovery Trail has been designated as a National Millennium Trail by Hillary Rodham Clinton and Secretary of Transportation Rodney Slater. The Millennium Trails Program is a partnership between the White House Millennium Council, The Department of Transportation, The President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities, The National Park Service, the Bureau of Land Management as well as organizations in the private and non-profit sectors. The route of the American Discovery Trail was selected through the efforts of citizens working with local, state and federal land managers in the localities through which the trail passes. The various land managing agencies and local and regional trail organizations have made significant contributions through their expertise and knowledge of the trails that make up the ADT. As the nation's first multi-use trail it is an ideal model for a "flagship" national trail for all citizens. It exposes people to the nation's historical, cultural and natural wonders as it connects large cities, small towns and urban areas by integrating existing local, regional and long distance trails into a national system. The ADT is unique in that it is almost entirely on public lands.
