It is an honor and challenge to become President of WYTC in 2022. I have enjoyed the trail for so many years as a place to exercise, walk, bike, relax, and enjoy the scenery. Becoming a member of the WYTC has been extremely rewarding, working with folks who are dedicated to have a super trail. We are planning all our events in 2022 including the Poker Run and Run/Walk. As membership chair I will be recruiting new members and renewing our current ones. Trail Appreciation Day will be in June. Our new project this year is a Memorial Pavilion at the West Newton Station with benches and with bricks underneath where folks can buy a brick to honor a loved one, see their name on the trail, or any other tribute they may like. The trail use has increased considerably in the last two years and as folks see the benefit, I see it continuing going forward.
The WYTC is a group of volunteers dedicated to maintaining and improving the 10.5 mile Westmoreland County, PA section of the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP).
Whether you enjoy biking, hiking, walking, running or cross-country skiing, you will delight in the beauty of this section of the Great Allegheny Passage, a 150 mile-system of biking and hiking trails connecting Cumberland, MD and Pittsburgh, PA.
