The Latest Highlands Trail Stewards Projects

November was a busy month for AMC’s all-volunteer trail crew, the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Stewards, who have been working hard to improve trails in Bucks County. In early November, the Highlands Trail Stewards were at work in Ringing Rocks County Park in Bridgeton Township, developing new trail, maintaining existing trails, and installing new trail signage throughout the park. Last week, the Highlands Trail Stewards were at work in Richland Township installing new trail signage and markers along the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network, from the trail at Veterans Park on East Pumping Station Road to the trail in the Walnut Banks Farm neighborhood. AMC greatly appreciates the efforts of the PA Highlands Trail Stewards in supporting and improving trails in southeastern Pennsylvania. If you would like to join the crew, no experience is necessary.
