Ta Enos, PA Wilds Small Business Ombudsman, says the artisan trail initiative has been in place since 2003 and is a project of the PA Wilds.
“It focuses on raising profitability and promoting artists in our region,” Enos said. “The brand displays high quality products so they can be sold at a higher price, and it helps artists get their products to market.”

Stacie Johnson-Leske, a ceramics artist, recently relocated to the area with her husband because she was intrigued by the Pennsylvania Wilds.
“My husband and I like to do outdoorsy things for our anniversary every year,” said Johnson-Leske. “We researched the PA Wilds and found that Ridgway had both bicycle trails and kayaking. So we stayed at a bed and breakfast in St. Marys and visited Ridgway.”
