The East Coast Greenway connects 15 states, 450 cities and towns, and 3,000 miles of people-powered trails from Maine to Florida —the country’s longest biking and walking route.

About the East Coast Greenway Alliance

The nonprofit East Coast Greenway Alliance works with partners at every level, from federal and regional officials to state committees, local officials, and legions of dedicated volunteers to bring the dream of this 3,000-mile route to life.
