Linking the tidal Potomac and upper Youghiogheny river basins, the evolving Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail network lies within a corridor rich in historic pathways and waterways. You can travel this historic corridor today—on foot, bicycle and horse and by boat—exploring contrasting landscapes between the Chesapeake Bay and the Allegheny Plateau.
The Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail has something for everyone. History, nature, recreation, wildlife, and conservation are all themes that find a home within the Trail network. Pick your region, your experience, and enjoy the journey!
