PDN County to County Trail
The Paso del Norte Health Foundation (Health Foundation) is partnering with UTEP’s Institute for Healthy Living to develop a route map for a county-wide linear trail in El Paso, Texas.

The Health Foundation’s project team, Sites Southwest/Alta Design, hosted two public meetings to introduce the project to the community. The meetings included an overview of the project, interactive exercises, opportunities for input and a discussion of next steps.
