Now in its third year, the Georgia Trail Summit convenes in Carrollton on April 14, 15 and 16. The conference is open to everyone interested in creating a connected trail system across the state. Tanner Health System is the lead sponsor.

Georgia trails are increasingly popular in communities large and small. “Across the state, trails encourage healthy lifestyles; offer inexpensive, clean transportation choices; serve as economic development catalysts for increased tourism, property values and sales tax revenues and enhance quality of life for everyone,” remarks Tracie Sanchez, volunteer chair of the Georgia Trail Summit.
The Summit features 25 presentations from trail professionals in every discipline, and eight mobile workshops will get people outside on nearby water trails, cycling trails, mountain biking trails, parks and the Carrollton GreenBelt.

Georgia River Network Community Programs Coordinator, Gwyneth Moody, City Planner of Tallapoosa, Patrick Clarey, and Georgia Canoeing Association, Dan MacIntyre, will be leading the Water Trail Mobile Workshop on the Dub Denman Canoe Trail on the Tallapoosa River!

Another highlight is the collaborative keynote panel featuring trail experts from Tennessee, Alabama and Florida. They’re eager to share trail wisdom, success stories and models relevant here in Georgia.
