2019 Piedmont Legacy Trails Summit
The fourth annual Piedmont Legacy Trails Summit was held on March 15, 2019, at the Salem Lake Marina Center in Winston Salem. It was a great success, attracting over 140 people (the most attended summit to date) from the Piedmont Triad region to gather, learn, and network about trails. The summit included presentations on regional trail collaboration, planning, and funding, along with the official launch of the new online Piedmont Legacy Trails Map, accessible on www.piedmonttrails.org.
Congratulations to the Haw River Trail for receiving the Piedmont Legacy Trails 2019 Award for Outstanding Trail Project!
Trail signs with the Piedmont Legacy Trails logo were handed out to county representatives and will soon be put up on trails all over the Piedmont Triad, part of an initial effort to brand the region as a trails destination.
Piedmont Legacy Trails hopes that the summit inspired attendees to make a difference and do everything they can to bring the numerous health, economic, and environmental benefits of trails to their own communities.
