43 Miles of the Great Allegheny Passage

A Public Greenway at Lake Somerset

9/11 Memorial Trail - Somerset County

Big Savage Tunnel - Mile 22

Somerset County Rails to Trails Association (SCRTA) began in 1991 with a big mission - to complete the Great Allegheny Passage from the Mason-Dixon Line to Confluence and Ohiopyle St. Park. These 43 miles have become one of the most popular and - dare we say - most scenic parts of the Passage.

The GAP was completed in 2019. Then, our mission expanded, and our name changed ever so slightly. We are now Somerset County Recreation & Trails Association.

We're maintaining our part of the Passage and now building new trails.

A public greenway circling rehabilitated Lake Somerset. And from the GAP at Garrett to the 9/11 Memorial near Shanksville. The latter path is a part of the larger 9/11 Memorial Trail connecting sites of the awful events of September 11, 2001.

Join us! Volunteers are needed - and very much appreciated!
