To balance the needs of all Trail users with those of groups wishing to hold an organized event or special activity, the Montour Trail Council has an Event Policy to regulate group-event planning.
General Event Requirements
Any event, regardless of size, must follow these requirements:

Event Application Process
Those who plan any event requiring MTC approval must make decisions about a number of considerations, from parking to tables/booths to restrooms to trash/clean-up, and more. MTC’s event application process assists sponsors with this planning.
We recommend that you review MTC’s detailed event policy as your first step. NOTE: Events planned on the Arrowhead Trail in Peters Township (the paved portion of the Trail from Route 19 to Brush Run Road) are managed by that Township, not by MTC. Contact the Peters Parks and Recreation Department for more information.
The downloadable application form has input elements embedded so that the information can be entered from Adobe Acrobat and submitted via email. You may also print the form and complete it on hard copy.
