Long before the Fonta Flora State Trail came to be, local governments were already making plans for trails, greenways and sidewalks. A plan can just give a general idea that some paths are needed in certain areas, but they can also have exact route, trail construction details and costs.
Fonta Flora State Trail has 3 Master Plans of 7 sections by Designation by Design. All three plans are found on the link – Section 1: Lake James to Morganton, Section 2: Lake James Loop, Section 3: Lake James to Marion
