What is Piedmont Legacy Trails?

Piedmont Legacy Trails is the trails collective in the Piedmont Triad whose primary goal is to highlight our natural places, connect trail efforts, and give voice to regional trail interests for the the benefit of our communities. 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.

The Piedmont Land Conservancy (PLC) and the Piedmont Triad Regional Council (PTRC) along with representatives from surrounding counties collaborated to establish Piedmont Legacy Trails to brand the Piedmont Triad as a trails destination.

The 12 counties that Piedmont Legacy Trails includes are Surry, Stokes, Rockingham, Caswell, Yadkin, Forsyth, Guilford, Alamance, Davie, Davidson, Randolph, and Montgomery.
