CONDITIONS, ADMISSION RULES AND FAQ

Who is the host for the Gear & Cheer Music Festival?

The Ohio River Trail Council (ORTC) is the host of the Gear & Cheer Music Festival.

The Ohio River Trail Council (ORTC) is a Pennsylvania based 501(c) (3) non-profit, volunteer-led corporation whose mission is to establish, promote, protect and preserve a multi-use trail, the Ohio River Trail (ORT), along the “La Belle Riviere” or the Ohio River.  The ORTC is currently planning & developing a 46-mile bike/ped trail and a 55-mile water trail, called the Ohio River Trail (ORT), following the Ohio River and its tributaries from Coraopolis, Pa to Ohioville, Pa.

The ORT is part of the Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area, Lewis & Clark Trail and is a candidate for part of the U.S. Bicycle Route 50, Cleveland to Pittsburgh Trail, and a portion of the Underground Railroad Bicycle Route, Pittsburgh spur. The proposed ORT will also follow parts of the "Great Path" and the 1913 Lincoln Highway. The ORT will serve as a key segment in the interconnection of existing land trails in the quad-state area (Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia).

Specifically, the proposed Ohio River Trail will connect the Great Ohio Lake-to-River Greenway in Columbiana County, Ohio to the Great Allegheny Passage in Allegheny, County Pennsylvania forming a mega-trail from the great lakes region to our nation's capitol.
