Friends of the Ecusta Trail Mission Statement
The mission of the Friends of the Ecusta Trail is to develop the Ecusta Trail, a rail trail project connecting Brevard and Hendersonville, NC, and to promote a local network of multi-use trails.  We are organized as a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. 

Please Volunteer
As a presenting partner of the Rhythm and Brews music series, we have the opportunity to raise awareness and funds to continue push for the trail.  However, we need YOUR help.  At the event, we will have booths set up to sell Ecusta Trail merchandise, hand out materials and sell pizza.  We need volunteers to help us staff these booths for shifts during each event.  Volunteer once or volunteer alot, but please help us to keep the momenum going.  Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Why do we need donations?
At this time, the Friends of the Ecusta Trail are raising funds to raise awareness about the possibilities and potential benefits of the rail trail. Funds may also be used for other purposes to further the efforts of building the trail; such as purchasing materials. To raise these funds we are seeking donations and grants from municipalities and other state and federal funding sources as well as seeking donations from individuals and businesses interested in promoting biking and hiking trails linking our communities.
