AHC MaintenanceThis is the Allentown Hiking Club's annual clean-up of our section of the Appalachian Trail.

What a great opportunity to get to know the club, what it means to be a steward of the Appalachian Trail, and then enjoy a well-earned meal together. 

Please bring gloves, trimmers, clippers, and water. Join us for 2-6 miles of A.T. maintenance including the operation of 2 DR string mowers, picking up trash, cleaning gutters at the shelter, removing branches and blow downs, and more. Please wear sturdy boots, long pants, and dress in layers for variance in weather. Bring water and a small pack. If you have them, bring trimmers and clippers. 

At 1:00pm we will meet at the Leaser Lake north ramp for a covered dish picnic. Please bring a covered dish item to share with the group. Bringing a chair is also a good idea. Hot dogs and soft drinks will be provided by the AHC.
