Recruitment Hikes for the Lehigh Gap Section of the Appalachian Trail

The Keystone Trails Association (KTA), the statewide voice of Pennsylvania’s hikers is offering two winter hikes along the Appalachian Trail in the Palmerton area in January. Both hikes will start at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center.

The Appalachian Trail is Pennsylvania’s most well-known trail. It stretches over 2100 miles from Georgia to Maine and is enjoyed by millions of hikers each year.

In the past, this 10 mile section in the vicinity of Lehigh Gap, was maintained by a trail club from Philadelphia. This club has decided to discontinue this maintenance responsibility. KTA would like to become the maintaining club for this area. In order to do this, KTA needs a corps of dedicated local volunteers to help.

Are you interested in finding out more, as well as going on a nice winter hike? Please join in for a hike to explore the section and talk about the opportunity. Feel free to participate with no future obligation.
