The Trail is also part of the East Coast Greenway!

The East Coast Greenway will be the nation's first long-distance, city-to-city, multi-modal transportation corridor for cyclists, hikers, and other non-motorized users. The goal is to connect existing and planned trails that are locally owned and managed to form a continuous, safe, green route -- easily identified by the public through signage, maps, users guides, and common services. The Gwynns Falls Trail is now officially a part of this national trail system.

Walkers, cyclists, and other trail advocates have joined forces around an audacious project, a 2,600 mile traffic-free path linking East Coast cities from Maine to Florida. Launched only 11 years ago, this vision for an urban alternative to the highly popular Appalachian Trail is quickly becoming a reality.

The East Coast Greenway Alliance, a national non-profit organization, was formed in 1991 when cyclists and trail enthusiasts from New England and the Mid Atlantic states met in New York City. They shared a vision for linking existing and planned trails to make a contiguous spine route between cities along the east coast, and formed an organization to plan and promote the greenway.
