Maps & plans

The mission of the Evansville Trails Coalition is to connect people and places, to promote active lifestyles, and to advocate for the development of multi-use trails. We have compiled bike and ped routes & maps within the Evansville area and listed them here. Our goal is to be a resource to our community, bring awareness to resources we currently have and to advocate for the completion of vital segments within our greenway and existing bike ped network. Full connectivity is the end result! If you know of a walking map, or bike route not listed, please share it with us.

Evansville Trails Coalition Map

The Evansville Trails Coalition regional map features Evansville area trails and is currently being updated. Trails and greenways help to promote physical activity, which is ever important in this era of obesity and other chronic illnesses directly related to the lack of exercise. If people in our community have the opportunity to walk and ride bikes safely, they take advantage of it. View The Evansville Trails Coalition regional map here.
