Welcome to the Highlands Trail in Pennsylvania
A DCNR Designated State-wide Major Greenway
The Highlands Trail in Pennsylvania connects existing recreational trails across a variety of landscapes within the Highlands Region. Click on the Highlands Trail map to learn more about the many built (green), in-development (yellow), and planned (red) trails in the network. The map is divided into eight Planning Segments. The Segments are composed of smaller Trail Sections. You will find pages dedicated to each section of the trail, featuring details like trail mileage, surface type, and the corresponding trail owner or manager, as well as photos, documents and links for more information. To learn more about how to view the Trail Planning Segments and Sections visit the Interactive Map page.
The Highlands Trail is being developed by the Appalachian Mountain Club in partnership with the PA Highlands Coalition and with the oversight and engagement of a Steering Committee compromised of non-profit organizations and public land managers, as well as local, county and state representatives.
