The Regional Vision. And More!

By 2033, after completing and connecting a series of long-distance trails, our 53-county region will be positioned as the epicenter of multi-use trails in the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, and Midwest. With the regional trail system at the center, it is feasible that at least 12 North American cities across seven states and Ontario will one day safely connect walkers, hikers and bikers. The multi-use trails, both existing and planned at this time, will also provide connectivity to three of the Great Lakes, the Atlantic Ocean, the Chesepeake Bay and more than 15 major rivers.
