Welcome to the new website of the Clarion County Trails Association!!!

Jake Bauer - Monday, February 11, 2013

I’d like to take a minute and greet everyone who is checking out our new website and to briefly explain who we are and what some of our website’s features are.

The Clarion County Trails Association (CCTA) is a non-profit group that folks from the various trail groups in our area have been working hard to get off the ground over the past year. The CCTA has several goals, but our first priority is to promote Clarion County’s system of recreational trails. This website is one of the big pieces of that puzzle. Clarion County has a lot to offer to visitors and residents alike who enjoy hiking, biking, geocaching, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, etc. We are truly blessed with amazing scenery year round and our recreational trails showcase that natural beauty.

Many of us are aware of the various recreational trails in and around Clarion County, but until this website’s creation, there was no single on-line source for information about all of them.

This website assembles information on:

The North Country National Scenic Trail
The Redbank Trail
The Armstrong Trail
The Allegheny Valley Trails Association’s trails system
The Baker Trail
Cook Forest State Park’s trails system
The Clarion River Water Trail
The Armstrong River Water Trail

We intend to add more sections to the website as further recreational assets develop in the region.

On each individual trail’s page, you will find a brief description of the trail, along with a link to their website. You will also find a blog for each trail. The blog on each trail group’s page will contain stories about activities along that trail. These updates could be about work being done on the trail, a story about an event that happened on the trail or a user composed account of an excursion taken on the trail. Anyone is free to submit a blog post about an experience that they had on a trail on this website. Just compose the story and send it along with any pictures to president@clariontrails.com. After the story is approved by that trail’s leadership, the story will be posted.

This website also includes a calendar that will keep you informed of what public activities are going on along the trail. This will be developed much further throughout the warmer months, so check back often to see what’s going on.

Another feature of the site is our sponsors page. Visit this page to see the businesses in the area that have joined or support the Clarion County Trails Association’s effort. When you visit these businesses in person, let them know that you appreciate their contributions to promoting Clarion County’s recreational trails. If you are a business owner and would like your business included in this page, send an e-mail to president@clariontrails.com for more information.

Another feature of this website is the Join/Donate page. Here you will find a membership application for the Clarion County Trails Association. Membership is only $10 a year and all money goes towards the CCTA’s efforts to promote recreational trails in our area.

Please take a few minutes and look over our new website. We hope that you enjoy it. If you have any questions or comments, or would like to know how you can help out, contact us at president@clariontrails.com.

Thank you,

Devin Callihan
President, Clarion County Trails Association
