September 11th National Memorial Trail

The September 11th National Memorial Trail is an evolving network of off-road multi-use trails, greenways, scenic roads and byways that link to the National September 11th Memorial at the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon Memorial in Washington D.C. and the United Airlines Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The 1,300-mile trail ties together existing trails through Pennsylvania.

Cyclists who follow the September 11th National Memorial Trail will pass through Blair County. Trekking westward, a traveler will descend from lush farmland with bucolic structures into Williamsburg. They will then follow the tree-lined Lower Trail along the Juniata River to Canoe Creek State Park and pass through historic downtown Hollidaysburg where coffee shops and eateries are set below a towering, 19th century courthouse. The journey through the county ends along rows of stores with antiques and heirlooms in the town of Duncansville. From there, a traveler is less than 50 miles from the Flight 93 National Memorial – about an hour by car.

The September 11th National Memorial Trail offers walkers, runners, and cyclists a safe, accessible opportunity to experience beautiful landscapes, discover new towns and visit historic sites of American resilience. Remember, discover, and connect with the commemorative history of September 11, 2001 by traveling the September 11th National Memorial Trail.
