Rachel Carson Trail Maintenance Day

Join a work crew and help improve the trail

We'll be doing work the treadway through the Independence Excavating property. There is an area about 200 yards in length where the hillside slopes significantly and the treadway should be benched.

Meet at the entrance to Independence Excavating on Saxonburg Blvd. Bring rakes, shovels and mattocks. Be aware that Saxonburg Blvd is now closed just north of Route 910 due to PA Turnpike construction and GPS directions may not reflect this. Follow Route 910 and turn onto Cove Run Road (next to Emmerling Ice Cream) then left onto Eisele Road (just past the entrance to Emmerling Park). Follow Eisele Road to the stop sign (about 2 miles). Continue straight a short distance to another stop sign, then turn left on Russelton–Dorseyville Road for about 100 feet, then turn left again onto Saxonburg Blvd. to Independence Excavating about 1 mile down on the left.
