To ride or hike the Great Allegheny Passage is to experience its trail towns. A new book, Deciding on Trails: 7 Practices of Healthy Trail Towns, highlights how trail towns along the GAP first pivoted to welcome trail travelers as it was built between Cumberland and Pittsburgh.
Author Amy Camp of Cycle Forward analyzes early successes along the GAP and provides a clear call to action for trail communities and those dedicated individuals who want to cultivate a trail culture and to “decide on trails” as a catalyst for flourishing. She recommends best practices for trail communities throughout the U.S. and Canada. Kindle and paperback versions are now available on Amazon.
