New Name.
Expanded Vision.

We are Trailblazers + ETHIC, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit formed in 2021 through the merger of NWA Trailblazers, an organization that has developed 300+ miles of multi-use trails, including the OZ Trails network and BikeNWA, a bicycle advocacy and education focused organization that has led the region in advocating for active transportation.

Our new name is an expression of the core tenets that inform and inspire our work - “Trailblazers”, somebody who's willing to take risks and go on a path that isn't already there. They blaze a trail and leave a path for others creating access and opportunities for everyone + “ETHIC” which furthers Equity in Trails, Health, Infrastructure, and Community. ETHIC advocates for prioritizing underserved populations' access to trails, cycling, and active transportation infrastructure and encourages their use to create healthier communities.

Trailblazers focus on trail development and maintenance. ETHIC focuses on all things public engagement. We are stronger together. We are Trailblazers. We are ETHIC.

At Trailblazers + ETHIC, our work is rooted in the belief that when people move their bodies, they are able to connect to the strength, dignity, and sense of belonging that reside within us all.
