Mission or Purpose
The Allegheny Trail Alliance (ATA) is a coalition of seven trail organizations in southwestern Pennsylvania and western Maryland, building the Great Allegheny Passage, a 150-mile multiple use rail-trail system between Cumberland, Maryland and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and the 52-mile Montour Trail to provide a connection to the Pittsburgh International Airport. The Passage is now connected to the 184.5 mile C & O Canal Towpath in Cumberland and provides a non-motorized, nearly level trail system between Washington, DC and McKeesport, PA. The Great Allegheny Passage is a segment of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail, one of eight nationally designated scenic trails. The ATA member trail organizations are: * Allegheny Highlands Trails of Maryland from Cumberland to the Mason-Dixon Line * Somerset County Rails to Trails Association from the Mason-Dixon Line to Confluence * Ohiopyle State Park from Confluence to Connellsville * Regional Trail Corporation from Connellsville to McKeesport * Steel Valley Trail Council from Clairton to Homestead * Friends of the Riverfront from Homestead to Pittsburgh * Montour Trail Council from Coraopolis to Clairton
