The Emerald Trail

Groundwork’s mission is to build and connect Jacksonville’s Emerald Trail, an idea championed by famed architect Henry Klutho in the early 20th Century. When complete the Emerald Trail will encompass approximately 30 miles of bicycle-pedestrian trail, greenspace, parks and waterways that encircle the urban core and link at least 14 neighborhoods and downtown to Hogans Creek, McCoys Creek, and the St. Johns River.

We are working with the PATH Foundation, Kaizen Collaborative, City Council, city departments, neighborhood stakeholders and private funders to make the Emerald  Trail a reality within the next decade.
