Creating New Greenways & Trails

The primary goal of the 2008 Tennessee Greenways and Trails Plan is to assist communities and counties to develop greenways and trails in ALL 95 counties in the state. If your community does not have a Greenway or Trail and you want to find out how to develop one, contact Bob Richards, Greenways and Trails Program Coordinator by calling 615-532-0753 or via email at robert.richards@tn.gov.

There are many resources available to help guide your community in the development of these type facilities.
