Rachel Carson Trail Alerts

by Steve Mentzer last modified Apr 11, 2009 05:08 PM

Important reroute advisory

There are two new reroutes on the Rachel Carson Trail, effective immediately. Both are open and blazed. Please pay careful attention in these areas to ensure you're following the proper path. See the Trail Alerts section of the Rachel Carson Trail information page for details.

Volunteers start first

by Steve Mentzer last modified Feb 06, 2009 01:28 AM

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 volunteer@rachelcarsontrails.org (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?

Trail maintainers needed

The Rachel Carson Trail needs stewards

We need stewards to maintain sections of the Rachel Carson Trail! There are a number of vacancies that need to be filled in order to keep the trail cleared and blazed. Please consider adopting a one- or two- mile section and help preserve this great asset.

Contact Mark Eyerman at 412-492-0375.
