Piney Rail Riders is a member based, Non-Profit organization, working to preserve a 23 mile long stretch of rail bed which connects Sligo to Brookville and many other communities of powersport enthusiasts. We depend on our members and our fine sponsors to help us grow and secure the funding to purchase and maintain the Piney Creek Rail Bed. It is our goal to preserve the rail for use by everyone including hikers, bikers, atvs, utvs, motorcycles, snow mobiles, equestrian...etc.

A little about our Non Profit Organization. We are a group that formed with the intention of saving places where it is legal to ride ATVs/UTVs responsibly and respectfully in our area of Pennsylvania. Our current mission is to purchase the rights to one of the only remaining tracts of rail bed in Clarion County that hasn’t been already purchased and designated a walking/biking only trail that excludes any motorized modes of transportation. We are still in this process and are working closely with various organizations that are currently doing similar work in other areas of our state as well as state and federal agencies that are guiding and helping us navigate the tedious and costly process of obtaining the rights to this rail bed. We continue to have fundraisers such as T-shirt sales and membership drives that not only add to our financial resources but also give voice to our cause. Memberships are important to our goals in two ways. First, you are giving yourself a voice within our organization and contributing through your annual dues to our financial success towards purchase of the right to the rail bed and all of the legal and other cost associated with that as well as the maintenance and insurance needs that we will have in the future once the rights are secured. Secondly, you are joining your voice with ours to prove to local, state and even federal governments that there is a need and a desire for such places to be saved, preserved and even created. We hope that this brief explanation has helped you understand who we are, why we are and what we are hoping to accomplish. We also hope you will consider a family membership or outright donations and encourage you to reach out to us with any questions you may have and to share our story and mission with your riding friends and family as well.
Together we CAN .......
