The Armstrong Trail is a multi-use, community-based trail that runs 34.8 miles in Pennsylvania from Ford City in Armstrong County to East Brady in Clarion County.

An analysis of the data accumulated from infrared counters located along the trail and the completed surveys received from users indicates an estimated 80,638 annual user visits to the Armstrong Trail, resulting in a total economic impact in 2010 of $897,442 ($740,250 directly into the local economy).

During 2010, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) conducted this study of the users of the Armstrong Trail under a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. This survey was designed to monitor trail user characteristics and economic impact.
