The Rothrock Trail Alliance (RTA) mission is to engage in and support efforts that advance trail infrastructure and promote positive experiences for all trail users.

RTA is a committee within Clearwater Conservancy, formed originally as a chapter of the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation in the Spring of 2018 (known as Friends of Rothrock) and transitioned to the current arrangement in Spring 2023. RTA works closely with Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Bureau of Forestry 

Clearwater Conservancy and Rothrock Trail Alliance believe that every individual has a right to access and enjoy the natural resources within their community, and that these resources need to be nurtured and protected by all of us.
