Pennsylvania was named “Penn’s Woods” for good reason. Over 46,000 square miles of mountains, valleys, and forests abound, laced with sparkling streams and majestic rivers that afford quiet refuge, recreational challenge, and inspiring vistas. The impact of centuries of settlement has created rich and distinctive rural landscapes, as well as vibrant cities and towns that make for authentic and memorable places that inspire exploration.
Experiencing Pennsylvania’s rich resources promotes commitment and engages residents and visitors alike in an ethic of an environmental stewardship. We promote environmental stewardship by promoting the planning and development of trails—on both water and land—that crisscross the Commonwealth to enable access and enjoyment for millions of Pennsylvanians.
With a statewide perspective, PEC facilitates regional partnerships of local governments, agencies, and allied non-profits to envision, plan, and implement trail systems and projects. Our years of experience in professional insight into project planning, design, and development accelerates projects from mere concept to reality.
