Mission Statement

The Ohio River Trail Council (ORTC) works to bring individuals, groups, councils, communities, businesses, recreational users and all levels of government together to promote and protect a continuous corridor of natural and cultural resources along the Ohio River and its tributaries. The ORTC's goal is to honor our past and build our future by providing recreation opportunities, heritage development, environmental stewardship, safe transportation networks and economic stimulus.


The Ohio River Trail (ORT) is a proposed multi-use trail that would interconnect existing land and water trails in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. The Ohio River Trail Council (ORTC) is a volunteer-led, non-profit organization located in Pennsylvania that spearheads the proposal.

The Ohio River Trail Council membership and volunteers plays an integral role in the continued development of the ORTC’s Land and Water Trails, as well as our ability to serve southwestern Pennsylvania riverfront communities through advocacy and planning.

The Ohio River Trail Council is an organization committed to excellence, with a clear vision and a passion for delivering outstanding results. We ask you to work with us to capitalize on these strengths. The council would like to invite you to become a member or a volunteer and support our efforts in making the Ohio River Trail a reality.
