On Labor Day weekend, we offer a salute to those Trail maintainers whose hard work keeps the Appalachian Trail walk-able. Thirty-one Clubs, located along the 2,181 miles of the A.T., work year-round to maintain and improve the footpath.  Representatives from area Appalachian Trail Maintaining Clubs will talk about the work and strong friendships built in this labor of love.  Meet maintainers from the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club North Chapter, Cumberland Valley Appalachian Trail Club and other area maintaining clubs, who will “show and tell” their equipment and experiences working on the Trail.
