Are you interested in becoming a trail monitor? It is a great way to ride or walk on the trail and at the same time be an advocate for the trail.
Trail Monitors perform several important functions for the region’s rail trails.
Note that there are no time requirements on when or where to ride as a trail monitor. Consider it your time to get exercise, relaxation and see the beautiful scenery when available.
Bob Hand, Director, is offering a training session for new monitors on Saturday February 11th at 11 am in the conference room of the West Newton Station.
Checkout what is new with the Westmoreland Yough Trail Chapter. New Memorial Benches and Kiosks have been installed in the Memorial Pavilions.
The key aspect will be the project’s floor, a brick memorial funded by those who want to remember a loved one or special event. It will be a place for everyone to pause and reflect on that special person or time in their life. For as little as $100.00, each brick can include the names, statement, and graphic of your choosing. A gift that will honor something meaningful to you and keep on giving through your support of one of best trails in Western Pennsylvania.
The first order of Memorial Bricks is in and have been installed. More are on the way.
A special thanks to those who purchased benches and bricks. If you haven't bought your brick yet, there is still time.
