Heritage Trails Partnership is a group of citizens who advocate for and support the vision of a safe, coast-wide network of diverse trails that connect neighborhoods to businesses, schools, green spaces, and blue spaces where everyone can enjoy scenic, historic, educational, and natural areas. We believe a healthy physical and mental lifestyle is achievable through easy access to natural, safe outdoor spaces. Our accomplishments include: - Development & maintenance of the area's only online catalog of local trails and group activities. - Promotion of and participation in local trail use events. - Collaboration with City, County, and State representatives as new trail-related projects, policies, and laws are implemented to ensure a pleasant, safe, and natural experience for trail users. - Participation in are health and safety fairs for children and adults to raise awareness about trail locations and encourage their frequent and responsible use. - Designation of the Mississippi Coastal Heritage Trail as a National Historic Trail and Part of the America's Great Outdoors initiative.
We work diligently to ensure you have access to safe, easily accessible places & spaces.
