Tricounty Rails to Trails Spring Work Day postponed
RIDGWAY- Due to weather concerns, the Tricounty Rails to Trails Association Spring Work Day has been postponed until April 15. This work day was originally scheduled for this upcoming Saturday. The times for the work day remain the same, as it will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The group will be working on both the Ridgway and Brockway ends of the Clarion-Little Toby Trail, and participants are asked to meet at the trailhead in Ridgway or Brockway.
One of the main focuses for cleanup will be cleaning out ditches and culverts on both the Ridgway and Brockway sides. Shovels, rakes, and gloves will be needed to complete this work.
New volunteers are always welcome to join the group and all levels of participation from individuals are greatly appreciated.
The Tricounty Rails to Trails Association was formed in 1992 by Dave Love of Ridgway and George Miller of Brockway. These two men first sparked the idea of forming the Clarion-Little Toby Rail Trail, which was completed in 2003.
Board members of this group consists of twelve members from Elk, Jefferson, and Clearfield counties. Additionally, a number of volunteers pitch in to help maintain the Clarion LittleToby Trail and others to keep these trail systems safe and enjoyable for those who use it.
Last year, the association made similar efforts in the spring to work on both ends of the trail and did so successfully.
