The road less traveled makes all the difference.

In a few short years the Pennsylvania Wilds Artisan Trail has become a driving force for grassroots economic development in the Pennsylvania Wilds and a source of inspiration and community pride. Our program serves three main groups: the makers of artisan products; the retailers who want to sell high-quality,
locally-made products; and the traveling public– the people looking to experience our region and ‘Take home a piece of the Pennsylvania Wilds.’

We’re finding exciting ways to broaden the scope of the program and make exploring the Artisan Trail even easier. The Artisan Trail is on track to build one of rural PA’s largest networks of creative entrepreneurs and help them bring products to market that reflect our region’s natural beauty, bounty and rural traditions, while giving an economic boost to our communities. We hope you'll join us!


From potters to sculptors, painters to goldsmiths, Pennsylvania's artists have two things in common: they love what they do and they love to share it with the world.
