Erie to Pittsburgh Trail

The planned route of the Erie to Pittsburgh Trail begins in Erie on the Bayfront at Dobbin’s Landing, it follows roads through Erie western New York and works its way south to Oil Creek. It follows Oil Creek to the Allegheny River, then continues along the Allegheny River in downtown Pittsburgh at Point State Park at the Point, where it meets the Great Allegheny Passage. Trail development has often been challenging, but there is steady progress toward reducing or eliminating the remaining gaps.

  1. Several overall comments for each of the pages —
    Roy, you’re making good progress on updating these. Layout is simple, logical, clear.
    >> Thanks
    Throughout the pages and the various maps, please remove the prior hyphens from Erie to Pittsburgh Trail.
    >> Done
    Where is “Contact” found? Couldn’t seem to spot that.
    >> Not there yet
    In the Site hosting, check spelling of Wheeling
    >> Fixed
    The pictures and the EPT logo at tops of each page seem grainy; are these just low resolution versions
    for while this review is underway? If not, please use higher resolution images throughout.
    >> I do not have a high quality version of the Logo. Can some bring me a CD
    I don’t understand why have Photo Gallery, Photo Slideshow, and Photos; wouldn’t a Photo Gallery with the images identified at least by Trail and perhaps the event shown be sufficient?
    >> Just showing the options. Looking for preferences. May leave them all there for the user to choose.
    >> Yes the picture needs captions
    For tagline, how about “Connecting bicyclists from the Lake to the Point”
    >> Open for discussion by the group. Above my pay grade.

    In the paragraph which starts “The development of this trail system…”; in line 2, please insert Inc.;
    >> This is a fluff paragraph, not sure the formality of Inc, is appropriate.
    in line 5, please delete everything except the word network and put period after network; in line 6, delete Pittsburgh and the word will, changing seek to seeks
    >> “Economic development” should be there as some grants have that as a restriction. Trails forjust recreation are ineligible for some types of grants

  2. As a tag line, I prefer “from the Lake to the Point” or “connecting the Lake to the Point”.
    >> Open for discussion by the group. Above my pay grade.

  3. Just my thought could we change the heading “Erie to Pittsburgh” to Cachet font. This would then coordinate with our logo.
    >> Not sure about the boxiness of the Cachet as standalone text. see
    >> Font changed to Aerial which is more appropriate for this size,
    and use the burgundy color?
    >> Color changed to #80293D which is the PMS506 aka brown. It is subtle
