The McDonald Trail Station and History Center is owned and operated by the McDonald Area Redevelopment Association, a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to benefitting the McDonald community through volunteer efforts and funding local projects. The McDonald Trail Station is located near the center of McDonald, directly adjacent to the Panhandle Trial and just ¾ of a mile from its intersection with the Montour Trail.
The facility, the only one of its kind along the 26-mile Panhandle Trail, is intended to support Washington County tourism by serving as a welcome center for those enjoying the Panhandle and Montour trails. It is also intended to provide a venue for the preservation and display of McDonald’s long and storied history. Volunteer greeters are available to provide visitors with trail information, details regarding McDonald’s business community and a full line of brochures and other information pertinent to greater Washington County tourism opportunities.
The trail station is open April through October on Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
