Allegheny River Trail in Clarion County is a volunteer 501c3 non-profit organization. For almost 20 years a changing cast of characters has tried to get this project rolling. At last, we are making a great deal of progress. Thanks to a generous donor and a grant from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources in 2020 we have purchased almost 2 acres of land in Foxburg adjacent to the Rt 58 bridge crossing the Allegheny River. Volunteers have pitched in over 1,000 hours to help clear brush and small trees from the trailhead in preparation for preparing the ground. We have big plans for our trailhead and trail from Foxburg to Emlenton. And, we will be cooperating with Foxburg Borough in creating a municipal park at the river’s edge. We have been awarded a major grant from DCNR for the next phase of the project. the grant is $533,000 and will require a 20% match by our sponsors, donors, and volunteers. We have already secured that match. We have a long way to go and we always need more help in the form of VOLUNTEERS and DONORS. For the latest updates, be sure the check the NEWS page.
