The TREC county-wide trail project would not be possible without the financial support of local government entities, state agencies, and private citizens. Whether it be a large grant from the state or a membership fee from a local citizen, TREC is thankful for the support it receives, regardless of the amount of a donation, because each and every dollar counts when building and expanding the trail system.

The TREC Board has established several funding opportunities, including:

Foot of the Trail

Every foot counts when building a trail! Show your support and build a foot, or two, of the trail through the Foot of the Trail program. As a Foot of the Trail participant, you will be proud to know you have ownership in this community project. You also will be recognized for your support of the project and receive membership benefits, including trail updates and invitations to all TREC events.

A foot is $50 per foot. For example:

  • 5 feet is $250
  • 10 feet is $500

Trail Benches

Benches located along the trail and can be named as you choose. Past donor’s choices have included recognizing a business, showing support from a family, or honoring the memory of a loved one.
