Highland Rail Trail
Organization: City of Gastonia, NC
Status: Project complete
Type: Bike path/trail
Address: Highland Rail Trail, Gastonia, NC
The City of Gastonia, North Carolina, will use a $10,000 grant to help pave the Highland Rail Trail. This multi-use path, which will weave through a neighborhood whose residents are heavily dependent on walking and bicycling for transportation, will create a safe commuting route as well as a beautiful recreation corridor.
In addition to our funding, the city received grants from two local foundations and was also awarded a Recreational Trails Program grant.
