What is Piedmont Legacy Trails?
Piedmont Legacy Trails is an ongoing project to promote trails and connectivity across the Piedmont Triad as a regional trail network. Trails are a great way for people to enjoy nature and improve their mental and physical health while also being beneficial to local economies and the environment. When people get outside and experience nature they are healthier, happier, and more likely to protect the places that they love.
Piedmont Legacy Trails advances regional connections and branding of trails through technical assistance, education, and resource support for trail projects throughout our region.
How was Piedmont Legacy Trails Created?
The Piedmont Land Conservancy (PLC) and the Piedmont Triad Regional Council (PTRC) along with representatives from surrounding counties have collaborated to establish Piedmont Legacy Trails to help brand the Piedmont Triad as a trails destination.
The 12 counties that Piedmont Triad Legacy Trails includes are Surry, Stokes, Rockingham, Caswell, Yadkin, Forsyth, Guilford, Alamance, Davie, Davidson, Randolph, and Montgomery.
This map represents those 12 counties that make up the Piedmont Triad, and the areas that Piedmont Legacy Trails will cover!
