A Couple Updates

DCNR contacted us about vandalism at the gate on top of the mountain, near the hang-glider launch. Did we see or hear anything? If any of you see anything or anyone suspicious, please let us know so we can pass it on to DCNR. Us users truly are their eyes and ears as they simply don't have the manpower to be out and about on every trail like we are.

We hear there are trees down. Don't worry, we'll get at them! Rick and I are planning a hike with the chainsaw on Doc Smith to start the clearing process.

There's going to be a trail building class sometime in the spring. The class is being coordinated by the Equine groups and the PA Equine Assoc is presenting the class. We'll post more info as it becomes available.

FYI - August 22 is the Rattling 50 Marathon. In the past, the club has not participated in this event because the majority of members had concerns of trail degradation from a race. That was three years ago and times have changed with more users on the trail (horses). If anyone wants to help out with the Marathon, please let me know and I'll let the organizer know.
