Initiative Objective

East Coast Greenway spans from Maine to Florida, and is being built by linking together locally owned and managed trails into a continuous route. The East Coast Greenway Alliance works with local and state agencies and organizations to promote the vision of a linked route, to provide coordination between jurisdictions, and to offer strategic assistance to states, counties, and municipalities building the trail. The multi-use trails are an integral part of local transportation systems, provide recreational outlets for all age groups, help promote healthier lifestyles, and promote local economic development. Any non-motorized user can enjoy the ECG! Experienced cyclists can travel the entire route. Pedestrians, less experienced cyclists, and wheelchair users (including motorized wheelchairs) can travel on all trails and quiet roads. Limited portions, depending on trail surfaces and local regulations, are currently open to equestrians, skaters, and others.
