Marshall Township’s Trails System provides a variety of exercise and exploration options. Look for our trailhead markers throughout the Township.
The trails are designed to connect residents to our parks and other amenities.
The trails vary in material types and width to accommodate all users:
- Asphalt trails (bikes, joggers, walkers, strollers)
- Concrete sidewalks (bikes, walkers, strollers)
- Gravel trails (joggers, walkers, mountain bikes)
- Earthen trails (hikers)
Please note, no motorized vehicles are permitted on any trails!
In November 2017, the Marshall Township Board of Supervisors voiced its support for future trails and sidewalks when it adopted the Pedestrian Network Master Plan and the Commodore Perry Regional Trail Plan. The purpose of the Master Plan is to provide a comprehensive pedestrian network that will link Marshall Township’s parks, natural areas, neighborhoods, business districts, schools, and adjacent municipalities.
The Commodore Perry Regional Trail is a collaborative plan that involves creating new segments to link portions of existing trails including the North Country Trail and the Rachel Carson Trail between:
- Adams Township
- Bradford Woods Borough
- Cranberry Township
- Jackson Township
- Marshall Township
- Pine Township
The goal is to eventually form a bicycle and pedestrian network traversing multiple jurisdictions and linking recreational amenities. The hope is to supplement future Marshall Twp. trail and sidewalk construction with grant funding.
NEW PEDESTRIAN CONNECTIONS IN 2023
In late 2022, Marshall Township was awarded a $1.4 million grant from Allegheny County for Trail Construction. This money will be used to construct missing links in the Township's pedestrian network, making it easier and safer to travel around the Township by foot. Be on the lookout for work to begin in summer 2023!
