Friends of Lawrence Area Trails (FLAT) is the result of many years of effort by various groups throughout the Lawrence area, including LiveWell Lawrence.

In the summer of 2017, community members dedicated to the completion of the Lawrence Loop decided to create an organization to focus on  fundraising, coordinating, and advocating for the development of a trails network in the region. Friends of Lawrence Area Trails (FLAT) is a result of this decision.
