National Trails Day was June 1st 2019. You may have been counted if you were walking, rolling, or biking. We compared to the 2017 trails survey and have 199% increase in Pennsy Trail use since 2017. We identified 184 walkers, bikers, and rollers (wheelchairs, skates, skateboards, strollers). We were at the following trail heads both in the morning and in the evenings.

We are also working at 400 West Trails head to control invasive honeysuckle so trail users will have space on the trail. This spring, we have had 120 volunteers at the Pennsy Trail 400 West Trail Head to help us cut, burn, spray honeysuckle, and replace with mulch. Use our contact page to submit questions and to offer your help as a volunteer. Sign up for our quarterly newsletter. Check out ways to offer your support as a volunteer, sponsor, and donor.
