Mills River Valley Trail Ride Benefits New Greenway

The Mills River Valley Trail Ride this Saturday was a big success, helping us raise money for this new greenway that will connect the heart of Mills River to the French Broad River. About 65 cyclists participated in the quarter century or family ride. And many folks celebrated with us at the mini-festival at Bold Rock Hard Cider.

Check out this great article about the event in the Hendersonville Times-News

You can also watch a video interview with Linda Giltz, who is spearheading this project.

Make Mills River a Better Place to Live and Ride!

With this event, we’re closer to our fundraising goal of $60,000. Please donate today to get us closer toward building this new greenway! We’re working to raise a 20% match for a state grant—so every dollar you donate with result in $5 of funding.

To donate, select”Mills River Valley Trail” under Donation Purpose.


The new greenway will give people in our community more opportunities to ride bikes, walk, run, play, push strollers, roll wheelchairs, and more. Help make it happen!
