Trail is also part of the East Coast Greenway!
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.
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.
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.
