You may be surprised to know that numerous organizations have been working to make trails possible in Beaver County for quite a while now. Fifteen years ago, the Ohio River Trail Council was formed, and they and others have been organizing, studying, and advocating for trails ever since.

Around March of 2020, when it became clear that much of this work was in jeopardy, advocates approached the Beaver County Commissioners about the issue. COVID-19 hit the next week and lots of things understandably went sideways. So, a year later, in March of 2021, the Commissioners were formally presented with the proposal linked here today.

As you will see, we made a detailed and compelling case for why saving trails in Beaver County is so important. Take a look and see if you don’t agree. And, be sure to follow RiverWise on social media to keep up with this important campaign. Together we can save trails in Beaver County and lead our region into the future.
