THE BEDFORD JOINT MUNICIPAL AUTHORITY has developed a multi-use trail system that connects downtown Bedford, PA with surrounding tourist attractions. The trail system is divided into two phases. The first phase (completed) is a trail connecting the Omni Bedford Springs Resort to downtown Bedford. The second phase (to be completed) will be a trail connecting the Old Bedford Village and Weber Lane, close to the PA Turnpike Interchange hotels with downtown Bedford. The logic behind a trail system that connects these tourist attractions with downtown is to:

     1. Stimulate economic growth in downtown Bedford
     2. Increase recreational opportunities for residents of

         Bedford County
     3. Provide educational opportunities for students of Bedford

         Area School District
     4. Provide sustainable forms of travel to downtown Bedford

The trail system may not be limited to phases 1 and 2 of the project. Other phases could include but are not limited to trails connecting downtown Bedford with attractions east and west of Bedford Borough, a connection to the H&BT Rail Trail, as well as a trail extension from Omni Bedford Springs Resort to the C&O Canal in Cumberland, MD,
and the Great Allegheny Passage.
