Connecting Neighborhoods, Places and Trails

About Us

Our Community

The Hancock Pathways Group, a committee comprised of local agencies and businesses, the Hancock Park District and interested individuals, are making the vision of connected pathways a reality.  

This is your opportunity to be a part of a project that will change lives in Hancock County. The journey to develop this network of trails begins with a single step. 

Imagine a Trail System

that spurs family interaction,   attracts tourists, and provides a valuable amenity to residents of Findlay and Hancock County. A network of paths that draw joggers, walkers, and bike commuters each workday.  Not only would this trail system serve as a tool for businesses when recruiting and  retaining employees but would also increase home value by having trails located close to residential property. This network of interconnecting trails will link neighborhoods, parks, schools and other community locales.        And, most importantly, is integral in developing a happier and healthier community.

Your Support is Needed

We need the support of the community. If you would like to be a part of this healthy initiative please connect with us via the Contact Us section below. We welcome your input.

You can help by contacting one or our co-chairs to speak to your group or organization to promote awareness or make a contribution to support the Hancock Pathways activities.
