Mission
The mission of the DeSoto County Greenways program is to establish a greenway system that connects public and private open and green spaces throughout DeSoto County Mississippi while protecting, restoring and linking the natural features and their functions in order to achieve a healthy natural environment and ecological diversity.

The  DeSoto County Greenways program encompasses scenic pathways, protected green space and trails designed to help improve the quality of life for the people of  DeSoto County Mississippi. The Greenways system takes advantage of nature and its beauty and will encompass a variety of multipurpose trails and green space suitable for hiking, skating, jogging, walking, running, equestrian use, canoeing and kayaking and biking.

The DeSoto County Greenways program is a public-private partnership involving the DeSoto County Economic Development Council and the DeSoto County Board of Supervisors.  The  DeSoto County Greenways plan is supported by state and County Elected officials, an advisory council plus numerous public and private  DeSoto County individuals. A Greenways advisory committee meets regularly and encourages you to get involved to make  DeSoto County a better place to live now and in the future.
