Our Work

Our Mission


Fort Wayne Trails, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to act as a community partner and advocate with local municipalities in the development of a connected, multi-purpose trail system in Allen County, Indiana.

Fort Wayne Trails, Inc. was organized in 2011 as a merger of three local trails groups. The Rivergreenway Consortium was organized in the 1970s, and worked with the city to develop the trails along our local rivers. Aboite New Trails began in the early 2000s as a response to the lack of pedestrian and bicycle facilities in the southwest suburban area of our county. Northwest Allen Trails also began during this time, with a focus on areas north and northwest of downtown Fort Wayne.

Since 2011 Fort Wayne Trails, Inc., has worked to complete their visions, and to work with municipal and community partners to further develop a system that connects our communities to each other.

Our History

Get Involved

Pufferbelly Run, Walk, and Stroll Update: To ensure that we can provide a safe and fun event we have made the decision to cap our registration and eliminate day-of registrations. We have a hand full of spaces left and once they are full we will be closing registration. The virtual options will be left open and are a great way to help support the event and Fort Wayne Trails. The virtual events are casual and you are not required to submit a time unless you would like to. We are sorry to anyone who has been inconvenienced by this decision and hope that you understand the reason behind our choice. Thank you for supporting Fort Wayne Trails!

 

Join us for the 11th Annual Pufferbelly Run, Walk, and Stroll, NOW WITH A VIRTUAL OPTION!

We are excited to announce that after careful consideration, we have determined that we can move forward with the 2020 Pufferbelly Run/Walk/Stroll IN-PERSON. While following the Governors guidelines and CDC recommendations, we will still provide a fun and safe event for all of you. Of course, your safety is paramount and as we get closer to July 18th, if we feel we cannot provide you with a rewarding and safe experience we will make any necessary changes. Keep in mind that in addition to a fun morning on the trails, every registration goes directly to supporting trail growth and development right here in our city. We thank you all for using and supporting Fort Wayne Trails.
