Peters Mountain Trail Maintenance – April 7th, 2013

2 Signs on the AT

On Sunday April 7th at 9:30 AM, the York Hiking Club will host an Appalachian Trail work-hike on Peters Mountain that involves painting AT boundaries and working on the Clarks Ferry Shelter.

Painting boundary trees is fun and involves hiking through the woods a few hundred feet off the AT path.  The purpose of boundary painting is to mark the trees and clear a path along the edge of the Appalachian Trail’s National Park land so that it’s easier to identify and maintain in the future.

Work at the Clarks Ferry Shelter will most likely involve general maintenance and possibly some minor roof repair. Whether you have skills in this area of work or not, you are welcome to help lend a hand and make the Clarks Ferry Shelter a safer and more enjoyable place for Appalachian Trail hikers.

You can join us Sunday 9:30 AM at the “Park and Ride” parking lot across the Clarks Ferry Bridge near Rt. 147.  If you would like to participate, please call Jim Hooper at (717)252-3784 or e-mail him at
