On February 5th, Weber Pathways will begin doing business as Trails Foundation of Northern Utah. February 5th also marks the 25th year since Weber Pathways was incorporated. Trails Foundation of Northern Utah will build on and expand the positive impact we’ve been making to the community for 25 years.
Why the new name? Trails Foundation of Northern Utah gives immediate explanation of what we do and the type of business we are. “Trails” – The product of the business is front and center. “Foundation” – The type of business is clear. “Northern Utah” – Where we do our work.
It’s About the Trails. It’s not about municipal boundaries. It’s about connecting geographic areas and connecting communities. It’s about connecting people to adventure, useful services and their natural environment.
The new name (Trails Foundation of Northern Utah) is a better reflection of who we are, what we do and where we do it.
Our focus will continue to be on projects in Weber County but we will continue to assist and manage projects in nearby counties as we have been doing in recent years.
For example, we are in the beginning phases of a $1.6 million project in northern Davis County that includes coordinated work with South Weber City. And, we are kicking off a $1.1 million project to extend the Pineview Loop Pathway and connect it to Old Snowbasin Road.
Also in 2020, another construction project will help restore aquatic habitat on the lower Weber River for a sensitive fish species, bluehead sucker. After that phase, a section of the Weber River Parkway trail will be constructed to connect to the Fisherman’s Point trailhead in South Weber City. The total cost estimate of this project is $1.6 million.
We would like to thank you for your continued support over the years and we look forward to continuing our work to help connect communities, create community pride, protect public lands and encourage outdoor recreation and personal well-being.
