The Ludlam Trail is a national model of public-private partnership, harnessing the energy of grassroots organization together with the philanthropy of corporate sponsors.
The Friends of the Ludlam Trail is a non-profit coalition dedicated to the implementation of the Ludlam Trail.
From the Rails-to-Trails blog:
The proposed Ludlam Trail provides a unique opportunity to develop a 6.2-mile multi-use trail through the heart of Miami-Dade County within the former Florida East Coast railway right-of-way. The trail will provide a safe dedicated and direct route for cyclists and pedestrians to schools, parks, work and shopping. The trail can connect more than 34,000 people within a half-mile, walkable service area to five greenways, five schools, four parks and two transit hubs.
The Friends of the Ludlam Trail represents the thousands of Miami-Dade County residents who want to see the Ludlam trail become an asset for the community as a running, biking, and walking trail. We see the Ludlam Trail project as a way of spurring job creation in our community, realizing immediate value increases for adjacent properties, and achieving a major transportation and recreation connection across the heart of the county.
