The “Commodore Perry Regional Trail” route highlights the existing sidewalk and trail networks in Cranberry, Adams, Jackson, Marshall, and Pine Townships, and the missing links needed to create a regional route – a hybrid of sidewalks and trails. This route provides a benefit to Cranberry Township, by creating connections in the community to key local destinations.
Western Pennsylvania is home to exceptional recreational amenities, including the North Country Trail, the Industrial Heartlands Trail, The Rachel Carson Trail, parks, and bodies of water. The participating municipalities provide exceptional community parks and recreational services to residents. However, none of these amenities are connected to each other, despite being in close proximity to each other. Over time, the successful implementation of the Commodore Perry Regional Trail will create a network of sidewalks and trails that link to amenities across the region.
