Welcome to the Highlands Trail in Pennsylvania
Part of the Four-State Highlands Region
The Highlands Trail connects existing recreational trails across a variety of landscapes within the Highlands Region of Pennsylvania. Use the Highlands Trail interactive map to learn more about the many built (teal blue), in-development (yellow), and planned or conceptual (red) trails in the network. The individual trails that make up the Highlands Trail network, as well as existing gaps within or between trails are also shown and described on the interactive map. You will find pages dedicated to each of the individual trails, featuring details like trail mileage, surface type, and the corresponding trail owner or manager, as well as photos, documents and links for more information.
The Highlands Trail is being developed by the Appalachian Mountain Club in partnership with the Pennsylvania Highlands Coalition and with the oversight and engagement of the Highlands Trail Steering Committee compromised of non-profit organizations and public land managers, as well as local, county and state representatives.
