Investment Ready Trail Projects

Across the State

The Great Trails State Coalition collected information from communities about natural and paved trail projects that are ready for construction and design. Check them out below. The large number of projects that are ready for investment (shown as teal dots) demonstrate the unmet demand for trails from communities across the State and the lack of funding to make them a reality.
