Highlands Trail Steering Committee

A long-term, large-scale project like the Highlands Trail network in Pennsylvania could not succeed without the broad-based support and participation of our many project partners. Since 2009, the Highlands Trail Steering Committee has met several times per year to discuss Highlands Trail projects in the region. Participation includes representatives from municipal, state and county governments, non-profit organizations, and interested citizens. 

We thank the following Partner Organizations and municipalities for their active participation in the Highlands Trail Steering Committee.
