Public Lands Ride

The Pennsylvania Environmental Council’s Public Lands Ride celebrates and showcases the wealth of public parks and forests across the Commonwealth, bringing awareness to public lands as an invaluable resource for us to protect and enjoy. 


PEC hosted the inaugural Public Lands Ride at Black Moshannon State Park in 2019, bringing together participants from Pennsylvania and beyond for a day of exploring gravel roads and mixed surface trails. In 2020, a shift to a “virtual” format provided an opportunity to expand the lens of focus and provide mapped routes in state parks and forests across the central region of the state. Since then, we’ve resumed the annual group ride while continuing to create and share new routes riders can enjoy year-round.
