The Karl Stirner Arts Trail (KSAT), named for internationally-known, Easton sculptor Karl Stirner, is a scenic 2.4 mile path that runs along the Bushkill Creek and through Downtown Easton; it connects Easton’s Downtown, West Ward, and College Hill areas. The Trail was completed in 2011 through a partnership with the City of Easton and Lafayette College. The trail along the creek is currently home to several contemporary art pieces, along with historic Easton monuments through the Downtown.
The Friends of the Karl Stirner Arts Trail is a grass-roots community group focused on helping to keep the trail clean, beautiful, and enjoyable for all. In addition to the Friends’ Annual Spring Clean Up, the group assists in planning dedications of new art installations and supports fundraising events.
