Greater Erie Regional Trails

Welcome to the Greater Erie Regional Trail network! Do you like to hike in the woods, walk in a city park, and take a stroll on the waterfront? Erie County has a vast array of park and recreational opportunities for you to explore. Find a trail location near you, see maps of the trail routes, view photos of the venues and terrain and learn about upcoming activities and events.

This initiative, led by the municipal members of the Erie Area Council of Governments, is designed to promote the awareness and use of the recreational trails throughout Erie County. Launched in December 2017, phase one of this project includes the development of the Greater Erie Regional Trails brand with an identifiable logo, the creation of a mobile responsive website with trail mapping, and the installation of 26 wayfinding signs to identify trail locations for both residents and visitors. Phase two will include marketing and promotion of these wonderful resources, internal signage within the trails themselves and shared programming and activities.

We hope that you will enjoy all that the Greater Erie Regional Trail network has to offer and come back for more!
