"We have a powerful resource in the Power of 32. Not only does P32 capture what's going on with trail planning to see both the gaps and the opportunities in the region but it offers another advantage. From a trail development point of view, we can see if we can replicate the experience from the Allegheny Passage to leverage economic development as well."

– Davitt Woodwell, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Environmental Council
