Good for PA!

Good for PA! June 9, 2015


For more than 20 years, hikers have struck out on June’s first Saturday to confirm what America’s most famous naturalist, John Muir, noted more than a century ago: “Wildness is a necessity.”

The occasion, National Trails Day, celebrates the nation’s more than 230,000 miles of trails. It’s a network that continues to expand, thanks to a decades-long effort to convert abandoned rail tracks into walkable green spaces.

New York City’s High Line – a roughly 1.5-mile elevated trail cutting across a western portion of Manhattan – might be the highest-profile example of a rails-to-trails project. But no state has done more to put old track to good use than Pennsylvania.
