Trail-Friendly Businesses

What Makes a Business 'Trail-Friendly?'

Trail users visiting Fort Wayne's Health Food Shoppe

When you’re on the trail, and want something to eat, make a quick repair, fill your water bottle or use the restroom, our TRAIL FRIENDLY BUSINESSES can help you out!

Please come up with additional content explaining what it means for a business to be trail-friendly.  Can I use a bathroom without making a purchase? Do they give trail users special discounts or coupons or something? How are they different from a sponsor? If I were a business owner, how does one go about becoming ‘trail-friendly’?  Since I’m gathering that a trail-friendly business is NOT the same as a Trail Map Sponsor, I removed the Trail Map Sponsors from this page, and added them to the Maps page instead.
