    Paola Pathways is a pedestrian/bicycle trail system being developed to link key locations throughout Paola, especially schools, parks, and recreational facilities. These family friendly, non-motorized, multi use trails will consist of a variety of surfaces and distances, designed for walkers, runners and bicyclists.

    Our mission: To improve the quality of life and general appeal of Paola by promoting the development of safe, high quality trails and lanes connecting points of interest within the community.

    Efforts are currently underway to raise funds to build Phase 2 which includes approximately 6 miles of trail around Lake Miola. Interested citizens and groups may request a presentation by contacting us at paolapathways@gmail.com. Visit our website for full details and downloadable participation forms.
