Baldwin County Trailblazers is a nonprofit group that advocates for improved and expanded walking and biking opportunities in Baldwin County, Alabama, and encourages citizens to safely use those options.

As part of our mission, we manage the Walking School Bus and organize and promote bicycle parking (Bike Valet) at public events, highly visible programs that inspire “people powered” commuting.  The organization also sponsors new bike racks, publicly recognizes bike-friendly businesses, and champions safe connectivity throughout the county for cyclists and pedestrians.   

A Little History about a Big Project   The Trailblazers was founded as a nonprofit in 1995 to raise funds to create The Eastern Shore Trail, a 22-mile multi-surface path connecting North Daphne to Weeks Bay.  We are stewards of the now-popular Trail.
