Highlands to Islands Trail

Gainesville, Georgia

Pilgrim’s Gift Will Help Fund the Completion of the Highlands to Islands Trail

A Pilgrim’s gift of $785,000 will be used to help fund the completion of the Highlands to Islands (H2i) Trail, a multi-use path that will connect several cities within Hall County, including Gainesville, Oakwood and Flowery Branch. As public usage of the trails increases, this connector will unify all paths through the system under one name.

Partner: City of Gainesville
Completion Date: TBD

A sincere 'thank you' to Pilgrim's for selecting the City of Gainesville as the latest recipient of Hometown Strong funding. Putting these valuable dollars toward the Highlands to Islands Trail is not only an investment in the City and its infrastructure, but in the people residing in and visiting Gainesville.
