Darla Kirkpatrick, Redbank Valley Trails Association President added, “The Trail of the Year designation will help us garner more support so we can improve and open the Climax Tunnel; finish surfacing more miles; add amenities; attract more businesses for needed economic development in the region and make more people aware of this truly beautiful recreational asset.” Page 68 Promoting Pennsylvania’s Trails Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee • 2013 Annual Report The Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee includes different types of trail users, builders and advocates, and people with disabilities.

As has been described in this report, much work is being done to develop, maintain and promote trails under the leadership of the Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee. These actions include organizing trail work crews, constructing additional trail miles, improving trail access, leading trail sojourns, building useful trail websites and mobile apps, and posting signage for trail users. Trail projects will continue to build on connections, lessons learned, and ideas shared at summits, workshops, and volunteer trainings in 2014.

In 2013, trail leaders came together to form the Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee, helping to guide the future of trails in the state. Trail experts and decision-makers will continue to support the process, and together will achieve the vision of a trail in every community throughout the Commonwealth.

“Successful greenways grow out of the grassroots. They depend on local enthusiasm, local money, local leaders, local priorities, local agreements and local governments. They depend on highly motivated volunteers including individuals, groups and businesses. They are dependent, in short, on a strong sense of community responsibility and on the willingness of each community to link its destiny to that of its neighbors.”

-David Burwell, former president, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy
