In the summer of 2000, Caldwell County Commissioners Ron Beane, Alden Starnes, and Larry Taylor called for a public meeting of citizens interested in bikeways, pathways, and multipurpose trails. This citizen's group met periodically over a six-month period and recommended to the County Commissioners that a more formal and organized group be established to represent the entire county and all municipalities.
On February 5, 2001, the County Commissioners appointed a 21-member committee called Caldwell County Pathways. After developing their vision and mission, the committee established three sub-committees to address (1) wellness and safety issues, (2) recreational issues, and (3) non-motorized transportation issues.
On November 27, 2002, the Caldwell County Pathways Committee developed its own Articles of Incorporation and Bylaways, and on May 29, 2003, became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
