TRAIL STUDIES AND SURVEYS

PROVIDE FEEDBACK ON THE USE AND HEALTH, ECONOMIC, RECREATIONAL BENEFITS OF TRAIL IN INDIANA

The Greenways Foundation is a charitable trust working to promote the growth, enhancement and use of Indiana greenways and blueways. Our goal is to assist communities throughout the state of Indiana in realizing the economic, social and health benefits of trails. Many counties in Indiana have begun to build trails and have seen first-hand the benefits to having trails in their own backyard; however, there are still counties that have not yet begun. We hope to change that with our grants program, which has been in place since 2012.
