Covered Bridge Gateway Trails First Mile Project

Organization: Covered Bridge Gateway Trails Association

Year: 2013

Amount: $5,000

Status: Grant awarded

Type: Bike path/trail

Address: Rockville, IN

 

Local businesses, foundations, and town and county governments are joining the Covered Bridge Gateway Trails Association in building the first of 10 planned miles of trail that will ultimately connect to the National Heritage and B&O Trails. Our grant of $5,000 will help fund the first section extending from Roseville to Rockville, Indiana, and demonstrate the benefits of having a place to ride and walk comfortably and safely. Local leaders see this project as an engine for tourism and economic development that will build on the one million people that come to the area for the Covered Bridge Festival every year.
