Circuit Trails Coalition Members

The Circuit Trails Coalition is a collaboration of non-profit organizations, foundations, and agencies working to advance completion of a connected network of trails – the Circuit Trails – in the Greater Philadelphia region. Their goal is to raise the profile of bicycle and pedestrian trails and their public benefits so that building the Circuit Trails becomes a significant regional priority. Since its May 2012 launch, the Circuit Trails Coalition has brought together nonprofit organizations, foundations and agencies to advocate for its completion, with an eye toward raising the profile of trails and their many public benefits.
