The Trailhead is being built to provide more parking and amenities for outdoor enthusiasts looking to visit this part of the Commonwealth and to help local municipalities increase awareness of the vast outdoor pursuits available in this region.

The Trailhead may service both Turnpike customers and those traveling to the trailhead from an off-Pike location. The trailhead will be constructed outside the restricted gates of the Service Plaza, allowing for easy access using a renovated walking path between the Service Plaza and the Trailhead. This walking path also allows seamless use of the Service Plaza and trailhead amenities by all visitors.
