Hopefully Triad residents realize that we are VERY fortunate

to have the trails systems, the green spaces and the multitude of water available to us for outdoor workouts and recreation. Other areas cannot compare to what we have! We truly have it all. There are people who moved to our area BECAUSE of our trail systems and green spaces, no doubt about it, the Triad is a little piece of outdoor heaven. Hope to see YOU working outdoors soon either on a trail or on the water.
