Let’s connect.  Let’s solve problems.  Let’s plan the future of Georgia’s trails.  

Meet like-minded trail users, lovers, builders and designers to share lessons learned at the Georgia Trail Summit. In addition to fascinating presentations, mobile workshops, social events and a keynote speaker, the Summit includes an UNconference component. Short sessions will be created spontaneously based on YOUR interests and ideas.
