The Paul Ambrose Trail for Health (PATH)
The Paul Ambrose Trail for Health (PATH) is a growing bicycle and pedestrian trail system providing free, healthy recreational opportunities for the City of Huntington and surrounding areas. Through grants, fundraising, sponsorships and individual contributions, over $2.5 million has been raised to support the construction and maintenance of the PATH. Construction projects begin as funding is released, and currently seven miles are completed and used daily.
PATH is a vital part of Huntington’s continued efforts toward the redevelopment and growth of the City, because the PATHs:
- Aids in reducing traffic congestion,
- Connects business, schools and communities,
- Provides no cost, recreational opportunities for residents,
- Contributes to the growth of local business.
PATH is named after Dr. Paul Ambrose, who was a promising young physician whose life ended September 11, 2001 when terrorists crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon. Dr. Ambrose focused his medical career on family health and using preventative medicine to fight obesity, and the trail system is a way to continue his medical legacy and impact the health of Huntington.
