Volunteer Trail Stewards

The Highlands Trail Stewards is an all-volunteer group of individuals who dedicate some of their time to develop and maintain trails along the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network. Most of their work is focused on the eastern end of the PHTN. Examples of Trail Stewards work projects include developing new trails, clearing debris from trails, improving trail drainage, blazing new trails, and installing trail signage.
