Board Positions: Trail Users Committee

Why Did You Join the Fort Wayne Trails Board?

Because I have a strong passion for living an active life and use the Fort Wayne Trails system for commuting to and from work on my bike.

What Does our Trail System Mean to You?

The trails are a great tool for connecting neighborhoods. They are key to the vibrancy of northeast Indiana and a great trail system to help us commuters get to our destinations safely.

How Do You Use the Trails the Most?

By bicycle. I live in Leo and work close to downtown Fort Wayne. I frequently ride to the trail system in New Haven and then all the way to downtown for my workday.

What Excites You Most About FWT’s Mission?

Just simply connecting all of the neighborhoods together. Allowing active folks to safely commute and exercise. It’s an added perk that most of our trails wind along side of our beautiful river system.

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

That our trails are a safe way to enjoy the outdoors and a great tool for living an active long life.

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.
