Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network
The Appalachian Mountain Club, working with several conservation and recreation organizations as well as local, state and county governments is leading an effort to develop the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) from the Delaware River at Riegelsville, PA west to the Maryland border in south-central Pennsylvania. The map below shows completed sections of the PHTN as well as conceptual PHTN sections.
Over 130 miles of the Highlands Trail have been established from Storm King Mountain, New York to Riegelsville, Pennsylvania.
Mid-Atlantic Highlands
The Mid-Atlantic Highlands of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Connecticut form a 3.5 million acre forested greenbelt adjacent to one of the nation's most densely populated regions including Philadelphia, New York City and Hartford.
The region stretches from northwestern Connecticut across the Hudson Valley of New York, through northern New Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania, ending near the Maryland border. Its forested ridges, fertile farms, pure streams and reservoirs are the rugged foothills between the Appalachian Mountains and the increasingly urbanized Piedmont and Atlantic Coastal Plains regions. The US Congress designated this landscape "Nationally Significant" when it passed the Highlands Conservation



Act in 2004.
Pennsylvania Highlands
The Pennsylvania Highlands comprises roughly 1.9 million acres and includes parts of 13 counties in eastern and central Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Highlands has been designated as a "Mega-Greenway" by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. For more information visit pahighlands.org.
