Haw River Trail Wins Piedmont Legacy Trails Award

March 20, 2019: BURLINGTON – The Haw River Trail is celebrating recognition as the Piedmont Legacy Trails 2019 Awardee for Outstanding Trail Project. The award was given at the fourth annual Piedmont Legacy Trails Summit on March 15, 2019, and identifies high performing trail projects in areas of design, usage, and overall management. The summit brings together trail professionals from 12 counties in the northern Piedmont. Piedmont Legacy Trails’ mission is to promote trails and connectivity and to help brand the Piedmont Triad as a  trails destination.

The Haw River Trail is a land and paddle trail connecting Haw River State Park to Jordan Lake State Recreation Area. Founded on the idea of conservation through recreation, the trail captures the natural resources, history, and culture of Alamance County and the surrounding region, and serves as a critical resource for connecting the community to its heritage.
