Enjoy and support the greenway corridor stretching across Madison County. Opened for walkers, joggers, cyclists, in-line skaters, bird watchers, nature lovers, cross-country skiers, senior citizens, families, physically challenged, and other non-motorized users.

Trails provide a safe area for families to walk, ride bikes, or recreate away from automobile and commercial truck traffic. Attractive views, open space, and alternative transportation routes significantly increase values and improve marketability of nearby properties.

A mile of trail can generate up to $110,000 per year in economic benefits from an initial average investment of $100,000 per mile to acquire, engineer, and pave trail land according to the Ohio Rails to Trails Conservancy.

Trail access helps retain area businesses and attract new investments along with opening up business opportunities and resources for tourism and other commercial activities.
