Highland Rail Trail

Organization: City of Gastonia, NC

Year: 2007

Amount: 10000

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.
