Mile by mile, trails build community
Our 81 miles of trails allow our kids to walk to school, help us improve fitness, and connect our neighborhoods. They give us places to meet, allow us to explore, and offer unlimited recreational opportunities. They even help us attract businesses and individuals to Fort Wayne. By heel or by wheel, our trails help Fort Wayne grow stronger. We’ve come a long way since we started building trails, but we still have miles to go to make sure everyone is connected. With many underserved or unconnected areas, the trails need your help to keep growing.
It's up to us to help fund trails
- Private donations are the most important funds we raise. Through these, we can unlock federal dollars that would otherwise be lost.
- Even a little bit means a lot. In many cases, your gift can be leveraged by up to 5 times with funding that is still waiting for a local match. Even if everyone just gives a little, we can make a big difference.
- Paving the Way funds get you connected. Of our 81 miles of trails, only 64 are connected. We have active projects in every quadrant of the community, and with your help, we could reach 100 connected miles in five years or less.
- It’s up to us to help build the trails. Fort Wayne Trails, Inc. works closely with our government partners to make trail projects happen, but we receive no regular operating dollars from the government or any other umbrella organization.
Paving the way for connections for everyone!
Fort Wayne Trails has active projects being developed in every quadrant of Allen County. New trails in the works include parts of Covington Road (SW), Six Mile Creek (SE), Johnny Appleseed to Shoaff (NE), the Pufferbelly Trail (NW), and Bluffton Road (Waynedale). By donating, you're voicing your support for the trail network. Any gift, no matter what size, will help us to complete the connections and show our elected officials that trails really do matter to our citizens!
