PATH Foundation

What is the PATH Foundation?  The PATH Foundation is a non-profit organization in Atlanta that came out of an idea to develop more public greenway trails in the metro Atlanta and surrounding areas.  They work on connecting Atlanta neighborhoods with trails for walkers, runner, cyclists, and skaters.

Why was the PATH Foundation created?  The co-founders realized that Atlanta was in need of alternative transportation choices.  There was also a desire to have more trails for families to walk and ride bikes together.  PATH understands that trails require less maintenance and, therefore, are more cost effective than other recreational fields, courts, and parks.  Trails encourage and promote a healthier lifestyle and the connectivity that they offer helps spur economic development, as well.

When was the PATH Foundation started?  The organization was started back in 1991 by three guys who had enjoyed off-road trails in other cities and wanted to bring that passion for cycling and the outdoors to Atlanta.  Their first goal was to develop a system and create more trails in time for the 1996 Olympics.
