Since 1956, the Keystone Trails Association has worked to protect hiking trails in Pennsylvania. We serve as the voice of the Pennsylvania hiking community and are your advocate in the state capitol. The Keystone Trails Association is the only statewide nonprofit organization working every day to protect Pennsylvania’s hiking trails.
Many of Pennsylvania’s trails are threatened by environmental issues, development pressure and government cutbacks. We need your help to ensure our trails are protected for future generations of hikers. Making your voice heard makes a difference and helps Pennsylvania to be an even better place to hike.
Learn about some of the important issues facing Pennsylvania’s hiking trails today and what you can do to help. Stand up for trail protection by writing a letter, meeting an elected official or attending a public meeting. We want to provide you with the information you need to become a powerful trail advocate.
