Pennsylvania has thousands of miles of trails, each of which provided a much needed respite during the stay-at-home orders of the COVID-19 pandemic. This led to Pennsylvania’s trails to not only become increasingly used and suffer added strain, but also find a newfound appreciation among the individuals who took to the trails during the stay-at-home orders. In response to the increased trail usage, the Pennsylvania Environmental Council has compiled a report examining and summarizing trail usage throughout the state during the first several months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their findings support that Pennsylvanians, from rural to urban areas, enjoy outdoor recreation close to home and have found refuge in the miles of Pennsylvania trails. The full report can be read here.
