Caldwell County Pathways, Inc.

Whether you walk, hike, run, ride or paddle, Caldwell County Pathways, Inc., is working hard to develop, coordinate and promote non-motorized, multi-use pathways for the enhancement of life in Caldwell County.


In the summer of 2000, Caldwell County Commissioners Ron Beane, Alden Starnes and Larry Taylor called for a public meeting of citizens interested in bikeways, pathways and multipurpose trails.

This citizen group periodically met over a six month period and recommended to the county commissioners that a more formal and organized group be established to represent the entire county and all municipalities.

On February 5, 2001, the county commissioners appointed a 21-member committee called Caldwell Pathways. After developing their vision and mission, the committee established three sub-committees to address 1) wellness and safety issues, 2) recreational issues, and 3) non-motorized transportation issues.

On November 27, 2002, the Caldwell Pathways Committee developed its own articles of incorporation and bylaws and on May 29, 2003, became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization called Caldwell County Pathways, Inc.
