Regional Trail Planning

The program continues to work on regional trail planning, partnering with Councils of Government (COG), agencies, counties, municipalities, non-profits, and trail users across the state. These planning efforts can be seen in the linked plans below.

The goal is to have regional trail plans across the entire state. Currently the Coastal Plain is the area that will need focus and regional trail plan development. While the Mountains and Piedmont have plans and are working on implementation and expansion of the system.
