DCNR Now Accepting Nominations For 2018 Pennsylvania Trail Of The Year
“Pennsylvania is a leader in trail development, providing its citizens and visitors with more than 11,000 miles of trails across the Commonwealth to enjoy, from gentle pathways threading through miles of preserved greenways, to remote, rugged trails scaling the state’s magnificent mountains,” said DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn.
Each year, the Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee designates a Trail of the Year to help build enthusiasm and support for both large and small trails, and raise public awareness about the value of Pennsylvania’s trail network.
Eligible trails must be at least one mile in length and be open to the public. In honor of the achievement, the committee and DCNR produce a poster for statewide distribution and plan a public celebration for the recognized trail.
The 63-mile Montour Trail system in Allegheny and Washington counties has been named the 2017 Pennsylvania Trail of the Year.
