This week, the Appalachian Mountain Club and the Pennsylvania Highlands Coalition published an updated Pennsylvania Highlands Land and Trails Tracking System. This tracking system provides valuable information to focus land protection and trail development across the PA Highlands. The new system includes updated information on lands protected since 2012, which was identified as a goal in our 2014 Pennsylvania Highlands Coalition strategic plan update. The new system uses ArcGIS Online mapping, and allows the user to view the entire region as well as zoom in to counties and municipalities, and also to search by location. Visitors can view conservation and agricultural easements, non-profit conservation organizations, state, local, and federally-protected lands, as well as regional and local hiking trails and water trails. Also, the tracking system provides users with the acreage of protected lands and miles of trails within each county and municipality.
