Thanks to Our Volunteers!

Rails to Trails of Central Pennsylvania is an all-volunteer organization. The Board of Directors thanks all those who work so tirelessly to maintain the Lower Trail; mowing grass, clearing tree falls, repairing damage, supervising community service projects, and making facility improvements as well as those who work behind the scenes to support the trail. You should take justifiable pride in your efforts that make the Lower Trail one of the most appreciated rail trails in the state by those who use it.
