Tips for sharing the trail
New to trail riding or not sure about trail etiquette? Check out this short video, "Tips for Sharing the Trail," recently released by DCNR. While the tips contained here are likely familiar to experienced trail users, it provides some great tips for all trail users.
Planning for active transportation
November 2023: WalkWorks, a program of the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) and the Pennsylvania Downtown Center awarded nine communities in the Commonwealth with $210,000 in grants to assist in the development of Active Transportation Plans and increase physical activity by connecting local destinations with improved pedestrian, bicycle, and transit networks. Recipients in our region include:
- Bethel Park Township
- Churchill Borough
- South Fayette Township
- City of Greensburg
October 2023: City of Monongahela approves Active Transportation Plan
