The Ecusta Trail: An Opportunity for Economic Growth

The Ecusta Trail, when completed, will link Hendersonville and Brevard via a 19.4-mile trail along an unused railway corridor that has been out of service since 2002, where it mainly supported local paper and timber industries. The trail is geared towards improving the economy by connecting communities and provide a walking, running, wheelchair accessible, and biking trail for locals and tourists alike.


The goal is to improve the local economy and inspire people to envelop themselves in nature and encourage them to stay fit as they enjoy the trail. The Ecusta Trail will help enrich the quality of life and the economy for everyone. It will meander amongst streams, fields, country churches, forests, and pastures. The trail will also give people the opportunity for an alternate means of transportation to and from work, errands, and home, promoting an active and sustainable lifestyle for those residing in Henderson and Transylvania counties.  


The long-term benefits of this project are sure to be substantial, and with the population in the area booming- the homes along the trail will see benefits in increased property values, exclusivity, high demand, and easy access to the trail, making it one of the top destination spots in the Southeast where nature and man can live and intertwine harmoniously.


The trail also aims to reduce healthcare spending by promoting physical activity, support new jobs in the region, and business investment opportunities.
