The New England wide vision plan for a network of greenways and green spaces is built on the continuation of a great tradition of planning in New England.
In the tradition of landscape architecture, the members of the New England Greenway Vision Plan and the American Society of Landscape Architects believe that the time has arrrived to "make the connections" among the thousands of parks and open spaces in New England. We can build on our amazing parks and open spaces to create the first multi-state, regional greenway network to serve as a model for America and the globe. We are poised to create a cohesive network for the 43 million acres of New England - making greenways as accessible to everyone as our roads are today.
The plan builds upon existing and proposed greenways in all six states and identifies the critical linkages that will make a New England system.

IMBA Trail Solutions visited the Moose River Plains Wild Forest for one week in October of 2013 to conduct field research, meet with stakeholders, and to begin the process of developing a conceptual design for mountain bike use in the area. All of the designs presented in this report are conceptual in nature and have not been completely field verified. Additional work will need to be done in the field to finalize the designs of reroutes and proposed trails described in this report.
This master plan is a result of the entirety of IMBA TS site visits, with greater importance placed on those 2018 and 2019 planning and design site visits. The master plan represents industry best practices, professional expertise and experience, modern trail theory, and insights gained from numerous conversations with GA DNR, CVA-SORBA, and many others.
