Why Did You Join the Fort Wayne Trails Board?

I believe a great Trail system is vital to the quality of life and economic development for our area. It says something about us that is good.

What Does our Trail System Mean to You?

Trails are important to me because I use the trail system many days of the year for walking, biking, running and at times for transportation. We have some beautiful areas that you can see from the trails.

How Do You Use the Trails the Most?

Running, biking, walking for exercise and for pleasure.

What Excites You Most About FWT’s Mission?

FWT can help improve the image of our community and also the connectivity.

What Do You Want People To Know About Fort Wayne Trails?

We are a very caring organization that wants to help our community be and stay vibrant. We care about people and the community.

Join us for the 11th Annual Pufferbelly Run, Walk, and Stroll, NOW WITH A VIRTUAL OPTION!

We are excited to announce that after careful consideration, we have determined that we can move forward with the 2020 Pufferbelly Run/Walk/Stroll IN-PERSON. While following the Governors guidelines and CDC recommendations, we will still provide a fun and safe event for all of you. Of course, your safety is paramount and as we get closer to July 18th, if we feel we cannot provide you with a rewarding and safe experience we will make any necessary changes. Keep in mind that in addition to a fun morning on the trails, every registration goes directly to supporting trail growth and development right here in our city. We thank you all for using and supporting Fort Wayne Trails.
