Join Trail Maintenance Crew

Let Lance Kittelson know if you would like to be added to a Susquehanna Warrior Trail Maintenance Crew email distribution list at llkittel@gmail.com.
We now have access to a tractor with a brush hog.
After the leaves are down and the gnats are gone, we intend to start reclaiming the edges of the trail where they have grown in.
You will be notified of future work days to help us cut off small trees at ground level and remove obstructions that the tractor and brush hog can’t handle.
The list will also be used for other trail maintenance events.
We provide tools and water.
Work days will also be advertised on susquehannawarriortrail.org and our facebook page.

New Construction Engineering Firm Hired

At our recent monthly meeting our trail construction team made a motion to hire TPW Design Studios of York, Pa. as our construction engineering company, and it was approved.
TPW Design Studios will help us complete the prerequisites for bidding trail construction with a goal of completion next spring or summer.
They will also guide us through the construction which includes two trail heads, the section through Spencer’s Salvage Yard in Salem Township, and a section from the Garden Drive-In in Hunlock Township to the Plymouth Township recreation fields up river from West Nanticoke. That is a total of about 4 miles of new trail.
I’ll see you on the trail!
