Located in the thriving gateway city of Easton, Pennsylvania, within walking distance of both Lafayette College and the downtown area, the Karl Stirner Arts Trail follows the historic and bucolic Bushkill Creek for 1.75 miles. Through the placement of artwork in a transcendent natural setting, the Arts Trail seeks to stir the public imagination and sense of possibility.

The trail is named for Easton sculptor Karl Stirner, who spent 25 years as a mentor and unofficial real estate agent, ushering aspiring artists to Easton.
The Karl Stirner Arts Trail is dedicated to advancing civic dialogue and infusing the community with creative capital, so as to bolster economic revitalization and foster civic and cultural pride.

Environmental sustainability and public stewardship of an urban “green infrastructure” are defining factors in the philosophy of the Arts Trail. By connecting the urban environment to nature, we promote a holistic view of our
shared human experience. In partnership with the diverse communities that vitalize Easton, our mission is to create a distinctive place for sponsoring educational and cultural moments.

The KSAT aspires to define and commemorate the City of Easton’s commitment to the arts and become a national destination for art and nature lovers alike.
