Total Raised to Date:
In just a few months the 100th mile of public, multi-use trail will be installed in the Fort Wayne and Allen County, Indiana trail network. This is an extraordinary accomplishment by the City of Fort Wayne, Allen County, New Haven, and all communities in our county with the assistance of many grassroots volunteers and donors.
Fort Wayne Trails is proud to have been able to assist in this milestone, and would like to invite the public to participate in a fundraising campaign to honor Mile 100. Fort Wayne Trails has created the 100 Mile Campaign as an opportunity for everyone to participate as trail construction continues and the trail network expands to connect even more of us. The campaign is sponsored by PNC Bank with a goal to raise $100,000 by end of 2017.
The campaign kicks off on Monday, August 7th. Those who donate $100 or more will be permanently recognized on a new display that will be installed at the Towpath Trailhead, located on Engle Road. Anyone giving $500 or more will have top-of-sign recognition with larger and bolded font. All donors (of any amount) will also be listed on the Fort Wayne Trails website at http://www.fwtrails.org Those. not wishing to be recognized should mark the donation as anonymous. Donors may choose to make their donation one time, or sign-up for our new Trail Blazer recurring monthly online donor program.
On October 17th it was announced that the 100th mile of trail was paved on the Rivergreenway between Johnny Appleseed and Shoaff Park! Our system has grown by 60 miles of trail in the last 10 years and donors like yourself have helped make that happen. We held a dawn bicycle ride and a ribbon-cutting ceremony on November 13th to celebrate this milestone.
Our campaign to reach $100,000 is still going strong, and we thank you for visiting this page.
Possible locations of Mile 100 include:
-Bluffton Road Trail—the first section of the Poka-Bache Connector to go south from the Rivergreenway system, being completed by the City of Fort Wayne.
-Pufferbelly Trail—the State Boulevard to Fernhill Drive and the Children’s Zoo section, being completed by the City of Fort Wayne, with help from Fort Wayne Trails.
-Hanna Street Trail--section from US 27 south to Burns Boulevard being built by the City of Fort Wayne begins to fill in the gap from Tillman Park to the existing Hanna Street Trail that ends near Pontiac Street. --Gump Road Trail—an important segment connecting Huntertown to the developing Pufferbelly Trail, being completed by Allen County and Huntertown.
This milestone celebrates a great grassroots citizen movement coupled with the support of our government leaders. Without all of their vision and support, the system would not be where it is today. The 100th mile of public, paved, trail is a giant accomplishment for connectivity in our community. In an age where more and more people walk and ride bikes for transportation and health, our network of trails are emblematic of the quality of life of our residents. The 100 Mile Campaign provides an opportunity for everyone in our community to help continue that momentum as we continue to plan and develop new trails throughout Allen County.
