AMC Teams with Boy Scouts on PHTN Project

The Appalachian Mountain Club recently teamed with a Quakertown area Boy Scout Troop to support the construction of trail amenities along the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network.

The project was led by Eagle Scout Dan Cubbage of Boy Scout Troop #13 with assistance from nine other boys from the Troop. The Scouts constructed, painted, leveled and installed a new bench and picnic table along the PHTN just north of Trumbauersville Elementary School in the Borough of Trumbauersville. The bench also converts to a table. The Scouts got the idea from a trip they took to Washington Crossing Park where they saw similar trail amenities. AMC looks forward to teaming with Scouts on trail projects in the future.
