The 2014 Trail & Greenway Master Plan sets forth recommendations on how stakeholders can expand a network of trails and greenways in Union County and its various townships and municipalities. The overall intent of the master plan is to develop outdoor community amenities that promote healthier lifestyles and increase the quality of life of residents.

In 2017, the Union County Health Department retained the services of a consultant, and later the National Park Service - Rivers, Trails & Conservation Assistance (NPS-RTCA) Program, to update the master plan and to organize community efforts with the ultimate goal of launching a formal working group.
