WHO WE ARE

WE ARE THE FLYWAY TRAIL TEAM

We are committed to a multi-purpose trail through Buffalo County with a connection to Winona Mn. via the Flyway Connector Trail . We hope it will make all of us healthier and bring new people and businesses to the area.

We recognize the unique qualities in Buffalo County and surrounding area that make a multi-use trail a perfect fit. In fact, it already is a state recognized trail! Unfortunately, the trail is on a busy highway. This portion that runs through Buffalo County will connect to existing trails on the South and North and at long last to our friends in Minnesota with the completion of the connection to Winona.

HISTORY

VISION

This scenic trail will be built on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Mississippi River Trail (MRT). The trail will ultimately serve local transportation needs by connecting to Winona and the Great River Trail and also attracting longer distance riders to enjoy the landscape and historic features they may be bypassing right now.

MISSION

The mission is to create a low-stress trail experience, provide interpretive opportunities and connect the small towns on this unique stretch of the Mississippi with other counties and our neighbors in Minnesota.

IMPACT

This type of addition to our community will spark a whole new level of awe and interest for our area, positively affect future generations and showcase the beauty that is defined by the Driftless Area and the Mighty Mississippi.
