Upstate Greenways
& Trails Alliance

Join the Alliance

Upstate Greenways and Trails Alliance draws its power from the collective voice of Upstate citizens and businesses who all believe in a connected and more expansive network of trails and greenways.  Advocating with our diverse and large alliance shows our elected officials and community leaders that growing and connecting the network of trails is a common desire for residents of the Upstate.

It’s free and easy to join!
