Why Did You Join the Fort Wayne Trails Board?

As an avid user of the trails, I am interested in the growth and development of trails in the community.

What Does our Trail System Mean to You?

Connectivity and commonality between individuals, businesses, the community…there are many reasons people use the trails: exercise, transportation, recreation, enjoyment, convenience. This means we have a diverse population at any given time on the trails.

How Do You Use the Trails the Most?

Exercise-running or walking

What Excites You Most About FWT’s Mission?

The tremendous amount of growth in just the past few years!

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

Specifically how they can help-whether it be through donating or volunteering.

Brewed IN the Fort is Fort Wayne Trail’s largest annual fundraiser. At the 2019 event, we were able to raise $23,000 for trails in Allen County. Like so many things this year, Brewed IN the Fort has been
canceled, but not all is lost. One part of this fun festival that we have been able to take virtual is the auction. Please help us raise money for expanding and connecting trails in Fort Wayne and Allen County
by bidding on some amazing food, fun, and experiences. The items are now available for preview and the bidding will kick off 12 Noon on Wednesday and will end 5 pm Sunday.
