The Yough River Trail Council is based in
Connellsville, PA. Monthly meetings are held in
the "Blue Building" behind Martin's Grocery
Plaza, 800 Vanderbilt Rd (Rt 201),
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.
