Greater Cleveland Trails & Greenways Conference 2020

Due to the uncertainties posed by the COVID-19 situation, the Greater Cleveland Trails & Greenways Conference Planning Committee has decided to postpone the Conference currently scheduled for June 11, 2020. We are postponing until next year and a new date will likely coincide with other trail-related activity in Cleveland in June, 2021.

We appreciate your steadfast interest in advancing the trail and bikeway network of Greater Cleveland and encourage you, in a safe and healthy manner, to continue exploring and enjoying the trails of our region.
