About the East Coast Greenway

We're developing the nation's longest connected, people-powered route.

Imagine a continuous, protected path for cyclists, walkers, runners, inline skaters, equestrians, wheelchair users, cross-country skiers, and more. We're building that dream mile by mile, from Calais, Maine, at the Canadian border to Key West, Florida.

A linear park, the 3,000-mile East Coast Greenway is planned almost entirely on public right-of-ways, incorporating waterfront esplanades, park paths, abandoned railroad corridors, canal towpaths, and pathways along highway corridors. Complementary routes add another 2,000 scenic miles to the Greenway network.

Since our founding in 1991, the nonprofit East Coast Greenway Alliance has spearheaded the development of 30 percent of the route on off-road paths. 

Together, let's grow the Greenway

Recent record-setting funding for design and construction goes directly to building the East Coast Greenway - as it should. The East Coast Greenway Alliance needs your support to continue our advocacy work that is fueling completion of the Greenway. The Alliance has a sustained track record of turning every dollar donated to our nonprofit into $100 in public infrastructure investment. Invest today and support the growth of the East Coast Greenway from Maine to Florida.
