The Yough River Trail Council is based at 794 Vanderbilt Rd, Connellsville, PA 15425. Monthly meetings are held in the "Blue Building" behind Martin's Grocery Plaza, (800 Vanderbilt Rd (Rt 201), Connellsville, PA).
Email us for next meeting date.

We are responsible for the 23 mile section of the Great Allegheny Passage trail from Layton through Connellsville to Bruner Run just outside of Ohiopyle - essentially most of the Fayette County section - and one town that has the trail actually pass through. It is an all volunteer group that does various fund raising activities through the year for supplies, equipment, utilities, upkeep, etc. We also maintain a campground and shelters at the Connellsville trailhead with all year round water and toilet facilities available, video surveillance and a 24 hour supply store in Martin's Grocery nearby.

We currently have 138 paid members and always looking for more. If you want to become a member, please download and mail in our membership form with your dues and/or extra donation to help with our expenses. Volunteers are always welcome and our monthly meetings are open to the public.

For more information, contact Ted Kovall, President, 724-628-6078 or by email.
