HARRISBURG – The PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources joined trail supporters and elected officials to announce the official designation of the September 11th National Memorial Trail as a Statewide Major Greenway. The September 11th National Memorial Trail is a 1,300-mile system of trails and roadways that symbolize resiliency and character while linking the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City, the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, Virginia, and the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, PA. The trail spans 25 counties in PA, including 16 local trails. The trail serves as a tribute to the fallen heroes who perished as a result of the 9-11 terrorist attack and the many heroes who committed themselves to the response. In October 2021, President Biden signed legislation that federally designated the trail route.
