Planning Ahead: Olson Tower Area Development

In October and November, I had the opportunity to write up a development plan to help direct some specific sustainable work on the trails around the Olson Tower Area. This work was hosted by the Friends of the Blackwater and funded by the National Forest Foundation grant. That grant will also be providing funding for work on those trails and on the sectinos of the Rail Trail from Douglass to Thomas. Coordination between the Friends of the Blackwater, the USFS, the Allegheny Trail Club, and other local agencies is making this part of the project possible. Volunteer hours is a large part of this grant, so if you are interested in learning more about volunteering or about the plan in place, contact the Friends of the Blackwater at info@saveblackwater.com.

What a wonderful place to live! #olsentower #canaan

It’s pretty awesome to be writing a trail log for this epic 4 miles of singletrack. #appalachiandirt
