The Virginia's Greenways and Trails Toolbox is a great place to start if you are thinking about adding a trail or a system of trails to your community.
As you begin to engage the community, it helps to understand how greenways will add value to your community.
Planning and Implementing the vision for your trail network will take more time than you think, so be prepared for the long haul. But don't lose patience, your work today will help prepare your community for the future, and provide lots of fun for years to come.
Fortunately in today's geospatial environment, mapping out a trail system has gotten much easier. For more information on where to get geospatial data on trails, click here.
