Welcome to Grace Trail®!
We are so glad you’re here.
What is Grace Trail?
No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve been through,
Grace Trail® will connect where you are now with where you want to go.
You can walk the Trail anywhere, anytime, with anyone by just showing up and asking the Grace Trail questions. I created Grace Trail in 2012 to help cope with my personal challenges and struggle of having a son in combat in Afghanistan. Since then, Grace Trail has guided tens of thousands of people to join a simple conversation that directs them on their path toward the life they wish to live.
Plymouth, MA is the site of the original, beloved path, but it is not the only one. Grace Trail can be walked anywhere, from the comfort of your kitchen to the office or any outdoor spot.
By asking and reflecting on the five Grace Trail questions…
What am I grateful for?
What do I need to release to move forward with my life?
What is calling out for acceptance?
What is the next challenge of my own choosing?
What can I embrace as possible?
…you will find that you are walking off your worries and accessing hope and possibility.
Move toward the life you were meant to live with Grace Trail, the Trail that leads back to the best of you.
Grace Trail® is dedicated to all the courageous survivors of life… Every time you choose to walk forward with curiosity, compassion and courage on this Trail, you are taking five steps towards creating possibilities in your life. I like to think of it as hanging your hope out there on the horizon and walking towards it every day. That helps everyone around you.

Create Your Own Trail
The Original Trail: Anne created the actual, now-famous Grace Trail that begins in Nelson Park in Plymouth, MA. Anne gathered the beach stones, wrote the words and questions on them and placed them along a 1 mile trail that thousands have discovered and walked.
Make Your Own Trail: You don’t have to come to Plymouth to walk Grace Trail! You can create your own Trail at your home, work, office, church, hospital, school, senior center, college, recovery center, park, convention center, workshop, backyard or kitchen windowsill.
Coming soon, a “Create Your Own Grace Trail” kit filled with everything you need to make your Trail, inside or outside. Sign up to receive an email as soon as it’s available!
Thank you! We'll let you know as soon as the "Create Your Own Grace Trail" kit is available!
