The September 11th National Memorial Trail is a 1,300-mile system of trails and roadways that link the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City, the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, Virginia, and the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The September 11th National Memorial Trail is a 1,300-mile system of trails and roadways that symbolize resiliency and character while linking the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City, the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, Virginia, and the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The trail serves as a tribute to the fallen heroes who perished on September 11, 2001, and the many heroes who committed themselves to the response for their country.
The 9/11 Trail is also good for our health, local economies, and the environment. The Trail offers walkers, runners, and cyclists a safe, accessible opportunity to experience beautiful landscapes, discover new towns, and visit historic sites of American resilience along the way.
The nonprofit September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance works closely with local, state and federal governments, federal agencies, and fellow trail organizations to make the 1,300-mile vision a reality.
Through an interactive map on their website you can explore the options for route planning along this trail. The interactive map features points of interests such as state lines, parks and camping destinations, and the sites of 9/11 museums and memorials. The map also specifies which portions of the trail are multi-use and which portions are on-road.
