Urban Long Trail

get more from BRO

Ever have the inclination to tackle a thru-hike but been a little unsure about spending six months in woods? Soon city slickers will be able to have a long trail experience on the East Coast Greenway, a 3,000-mile multi-use trail that links Calais, Maine at the Canadian border with Key West, Florida. Currently the nation’s first long distance urban trail system is 21 percent off-road, but the plan is to be completely traffic free, while incorporating waterfront esplanades, park paths, abandoned railroad corridors, and canal towpaths. The trail, being created by the nonprofit East Coast Greenway Alliance, passes through the heart of the 25 major cities.
