Opportunity this Weekend: There is a last minute opportunity to do
important trail work with professional trail maintainers. An ATC
crew’s plans changed, and it will be working on the AT relocation
at Loudoun Heights near Harpers Ferry on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
(September 22, 23, and 24). The crew will build a sustainable trail
in difficult, steep terrain. This is a three day work trip with the
crew based at the Blackburn Trail Center, but they are pleased to
have anyone interested join them for a day or more. For more
information, call Chris Brunton at 703-967-2226.
