As one of our newest Members, Georgia Hi-Lo Trail is brand new, starting in April 2019, even though the idea has been in the works for 4 years!
They are building America’s longest paved multi-use trail from Athens to Savannah, Ga (through Sandersville) to empower rural people.
As they build this trail, they offer community programs to empower the next generation with the skills they need.
Developing this trail will create an economic engine and community gathering place that the entire community can enjoy and benefit from (economically and physically) for generations to come!

We even made a few videos highlighting their anti litter efforts! The videos had over 5,000 views!
