Highlands Trail Stewards Volunteer in Richland Township

The volunteer Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Stewards installed directional signage on the PHTN in the Quakertown area.

On a windy day in early May, members of the PHTN Highlands Trail Stewards were hard at work installing 10 directional signs on the PHTN in Richland Township, just south of Quakertown Borough. The Stewards installed the signs along the Brayton Garden and Hunter’s Crossing Trails to assist with local wayfinding. Additionally, the Trail Stewards installed the first PHTN trail markers. The PHTN Trail Stewards work to build and maintain trails in southeastern PA.
