Vision

Who are we: An alliance of non-profit organizations, local municipalities, supporters, and advocates affiliated with the Erie to Pittsburgh Trail corridor.

Our Vision: A system of non-motorized, multi-use trails, and local connectors linking Erie to Pittsburgh through the experience of small towns, rural landscapes, historic sites, and cultural areas, tied to regional trails and beyond.

Our Mission: The Alliance’s Mission is to advocate for the development of the continuous trail; to assist our local partners by sharing expertise and resources; to promote the trail for its regional significance and encourage local and broader connections.

By linking the Seaway Trail in the north (which already connects to the Erie Canal trail across the state of New York) to the Great Allegheny Passage in the south (which leads all the way to Washington DC) cyclists will be able to enjoy over one thousand miles of nearly continuous trail in an arc from Albany to the nation’s capital. The existence of this through route is likely to stimulate the development of numerous feeder trails to link smaller communities across northwestern Pennsylvania and upstate New York.
