This page grades each community's greenway system
and characterizes them as either Active, Typical, Sedentary or Dead-end. Grades are determined by the density of trails in the community. Trail density is calculated by dividing the length of greenways in the community by the area of the community. Side paths along roadways and landlocked trails are not included.
