HOW YOU CAN HELP
There are over 600 miles of trail on the ground. The somber news is that this is a long-term vision, with a lot of years and trail miles to go. Although we look forward to that day, and even though some of the trails are already complete, we’re simply not ready to share the system as a whole with the world.
We still encourage you to keep using the trails that are open for business. Here are a few ways you can support our vision:
- Financially support your local trail organization or any of the organizations within our system that are working to put more trail on the ground. Partner organizations are listed and linked below.
- Volunteer with any of these same trail organizations. The trails are built and maintained thanks to the assistance and effort of local volunteers. Whether you are volunteering for single-day, “plug-in” projects or long-term assistance or leadership roles, the Industrial Heartland Trails Coalition needs you to help us set the foundation for longer, cleaner and safer trails. As the saying goes, many hands make light work.
- Keep riding. Keep walking. Keep running. And continue to spread the word about the trails you’re using.
