NEPA Trails Forum

Who We Are!NBLT Kayak

The Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA) Trails Forum is a loose alliance of organizations, government entities, and individuals who are involved with trail development in the region. These include recreational trails, mountain biking or snowmobile trails, park or municipal trails, water trails, or trails on public or private lands. The organization was formed in 2010 and organizers schedule 3 quarterly meetings (February, August, November) and an annual trail symposium every year in May.

What We Do!

The Trails Forum focuses on addressing issues in the trail building community. Representatives from trail user groups, municipalities and government agencies, civic organizations, professional firms, trail managers, and interested individuals attended the events to meet fellow trail groups, learn more about projects in the region, and share ideas and best practices. The Trails Forum meets on a quarterly basis.
