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.
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 email@example.com (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?
Register now for the 2009 Rachel Carson Trail Challenge!
Choose from the demanding 34-mile Challenge, a 16-mile Homestead Challenge, or a 7-mile Family Challenge. These events will end in the same place — Harrison Hills Park. For details and to register online, see the Challenge 2009 page.
A 15-mile hike on the Baker Trail
Join us on August 23 for the Baker Trail Cakewalk, a 15-mile hike from the northern trailhead to the Cook Forest fire tower. It takes place at the same time as the Baker Trail UltraChallenge, our 50-mile ultra marathon! See the Cakewalk page for details.
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.
