Formed in October 2011, the Greater Aiken Integrated Trails (GAIT) Foundation is focused on and committed to the development and operation of a county-wide, integrated recreation trails system to serve the interests of the equine community, hiking, biking, jogging and walking enthusiasts, and to restore streams for small water craft - all shared green-way, where feasible.
CONNECTING PARKS, NEIGHBORHOODS AND COMMUNITIES
Among the chief benefits of an integrated Trails System is the ability to connect people to nature and promote good health while providing enjoyable, worthwhile and wholesome recreation. Other benefits include connecting parks, communities and neighborhoods to encourage broader citizen use, promoting tourism, and enhancing economic vitality, protecting watersheds and flood plains and providing recreational transportation alternatives.
