Founded in 2001 by David Biber, Nancy Trun, Danielle Conway and Don Olson, the mission of the Pittsburgh Trails Advocacy Group (PTAG) is to protect and encourage access to shared-use trails in Western Pennsylvania. We are especially concerned with single-track trails used by mountain bikers, hikers, trail runners, cross-country skiers and equestrians.
PTAG works with city, county, state and private landowners to ensure that all trails are approved by the landowner or landmanager and constructed and maintained to the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) guidelines, with minimal impact on the environment. We work to educate all users on responsible trail use with the goal of fostering improved relations among landowners and all trail users.
PTAG is a not-for-profit, all volunteer organization
PTAG is a 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit organization that relies on volunteers to take care of the trails that we all like to play on. Your input and help are very important, please consider getting involved.
