Trail Construction Program


The City of Fayetteville has a unique trails construction program geared to design and construct trails as cost efficiently and quickly as possible by performing design, property acquisition and construction in-house utilizing primarily city staff. The city trails coordinator oversees the trails construction program through the Engineering Division with support from the city surveyors, land agents and engineers. When the trail is designed and the necessary property is acquired, the 9-member city trails construction crew builds the trail as part of the Transportation Division. Once the trail is complete, the Parks and Recreation Department oversees the maintenance and event programming of completed trails. For information and maps of existing trails please visit Trails page.
