If you're looking for a place to do some trail maintenance, the Keystone
Trails Association runs weekend trips. But we don't do the AT - the AT
maintenance is run through the clubs. I suspect you may already have it,
but the PATC home page is at: http://io.datasys.swri.edu/PATC/patc.html
They always seem to be looking for volunteers.
Just in case you might be interested in non-AT maintenance, I'll include
the KTA Trailcare schedule. The KTA crew works mostly on Pennsylvania
trails that are in danger of being closed due to lack of use, storm damage,
lack of maintenance, etc.
And I'll extend everyone a personal invitation to join us. Unfortunately,
Ginny & I won't be at the first one - we'll be in Arizona.
Anyway, here's the 1996 KTA Trailcare Schedule -
