Preparing for the "Welcome to PA Highlands" Trail Celebration

AMC's Mid-Atlantic Recreation Planner, Jennifer Heisey, did a final "scouting" of Riegelsville in preparation for this Saturday's big "Welcome to PA" Highlands Trail Celebration. The celebration is in honor of the 150-mile Highlands Trail reaching the NJ/PA border & marking the beginning of the Highlands Trail in the PA Highlands. Jennifer also met up with the Borough of Riegelsville's Enhancement Committee and Board Council Member to put up the new Welcome to Riegelsville/Highlands Trail sign, which will be unveiled on Saturday as part of the festivities.

Join in this exciting and family-friendly celebration by welcoming the Highlands Trail into PA! The PA Highlands Trail Network is envisioned to traverse the 13-county PA Highlands beginning in Riegelsville, PA - Bucks County.
