The Multi-Use Trails Master Plan involves the design and development of a trail system that can accommodate a variety of leisure activities, while enhancing opportunities for non-motorized travel throughout the community; connecting neighborhoods, parks, schools, and other community locations.
It will feature two types of trail designs. A Connector Trail will be used throughout neighborhoods and city streets, while a Greenway Trail will allow for connections to be made along the Blanchard River and/or the other various creeks and streams throughout Findlay. When completed, the Master Plan will provide about 102 miles of trails throughout Findlay and Hancock County.
