Pennsylvania Rail Trail Sojourn

June 21-26

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s (RTC) Rail-Trail Sojourns are more than just great rides (and they are great rides!); they’re powerful “trail-building tools” that highlight the incredible impact of long-distance trail routes on America’s communities.

Since 2001, RTC’s annual Rail-Trail Sojourns have guided thousands of riders from all over America along the most scenic trail networks in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, and New York…and the list continues to grow.

Returning to the Montour Trail and the Great Allegheny Passage, the 2015 sojourn continues the trailblazing tradition of previous sojourns.

This year’s ride will visit new communities and utilize new camping and accommodation sites. Not only does this provide fresh attractions for returning riders, it also continues the sojourn’s theme of helping more communities boost their local economies through trail tourism.

West Virginia Rail-Trail Sojourn

April 24-26

RTC is excited to be launching the first ever West Virginia Rail-Trail Sojourn in April 2015!

The 2015 sojourn in West Virginia will center on the city of Morgantown, home to West Virginia University and the burgeoning Mon River Trails system, 48 miles of rail-trail in the north central part of the state, connecting Marion, Monongahela and Preston counties.

With Morgantown, as the hub, riders will take a full day each to explore the region’s three premier rail-trails: the Deckers Creek Trail, the Mon River Trail North (including the Sheepskin and Cheat River trails) and the Mon River Trail South.

West Virginia has taken great strides recently toward developing a rail-trail system that complements its wonderful natural landscape of the Appalachians and its historic small towns and cities. The inaugural West Virginia sojourn will highlight key gaps in the Mon River Trails system that, if completed, would result in a 142-mile rail-trail system and unite with the Great Allegheny Passage in Pennsylvania to create an unrivaled two-state network.
