Kiski-Conemaugh Water Trail
In addition to managing the statewide water trail program, PEC occasionally works to establish water trails when the need exists, as was the case with the Kiski-Conemaugh Water Trail.
PEC worked with Allegheny Ridge Corporation in an effort to establish the Main Line Canal Greenway from Pittsburgh to Harrisburg and to establish the Kiski-Conemaugh River Water Trail in the mid-2000s. This effort included leading a trail feasibility process, developing a map and guide, and applying to the statewide partnership for designation.
The trail includes 50 miles on two rivers. It stretches from Johnstown, Cambria County (Conemaugh River) to Freeport, Allegheny County (Kiski River).
