Trails Master Plan
From the very beginning, the overriding goal of this master planning endeavor has been to facilitate the actual construction of as many trais in Muskogee as possible; to ensure those trails are safe and located where they are needed and will be used; and to connect the major desitnations within the city. This was a tall order from the start, and could not have been accomplished without the support, cooperation, hard work, and enthusiasm for the ctywide trails concept that we received throughout the development of the Muskogee Trails Master Plan.
