Fayette Trails Coalition

Welcome to the Fayette Trails Coalition (FTC) page! The FTC is a dedicated initiative under the National Road Heritage Corridor’s Outdoor Recreation Department. Our mission is to develop, enhance, and maintain a comprehensive network of trails throughout Fayette County, Pennsylvania, to connect communities, promote wellness, support local economic development, and preserve our natural and cultural heritage.

Our Mission:

Connecting Communities: Our trails serve as pathways that link towns, fostering a sense of togetherness and providing opportunities for shared experiences.

Enhancing Well-Being: Encouraging active lifestyles through accessible and safe trails for walking, biking, and hiking, enhancing both physical and mental health.

Preserving Heritage: Highlighting the rich cultural and natural history of Fayette County through interpretive signage and educational programs.


Forging a Connected Network of Trails : 

The Sheepskin Trail is a crucial part of the Parkersburg to Pittsburgh (P2P) connection, and a missing link to connecting SWPA and WV to Pittsburgh and D.C. This trail network will link our community to larger trail systems, including the GAP trail, the C&O Towpath, and Mon River Trails. The Sheepskin Trail can serve as a backbone for a network of connected trails and communities throughout Fayette County. 

Educational Programs:

Engage in our workshops, webinars, and nature camps that educate and inspire a deeper appreciation for our environment and connect towns to the growing outdoor recreation economy created by the trail network in Fayette County.

Community Events:

Join us for guided hikes, historic talks, volunteer days, and stakeholder meetings that build community spirit and a shared love for our trails.
