Earn your place at the head of the line!

This year, any volunteer who contributes at least four hours will be able to start the Rachel Carson Trail Challenge at the head of the line or immediately upon arriving at the trailhead.

To qualify, simply attend one of the trail work days that will be posted on this site. Or lead a training hike, or help with promotions, or any way you can. If you have a talent and see where it might be useful, let us know! Email (be sure to add <notspam> to the subject) or call Steve at 412-512-4544.

Help make the trail and the Challenge better! Why wait?
