Welcome to our interactive map for viewing protected lands and trails within the PA Highlands. The protected lands are comprised of privately conserved lands through fee and easement, as well as publicly accessible open space such as federal, state and municipal park lands. Lands protected recently are highlighted. Trails included are regional multi-use trails, local hiking and walking trails, as well as water trails. Regional hiking and water trails must be within a minimum of three municipalities. Local hiking and walking trails are considered within one or two municipalities. Hiking trails may include sections located on roads.
Because the protection of open space and the development of trails is constantly progressing, please understand that the information on this website is a shapshot of the status of protected lands and miles of trails as of May 2016. Please make sure to check other sources for the most current information.
