About this event

Join members of the Martic Trails Advisory Committee from Martic Township and Conestoga Township on Saturday, October 1st to help with a community trail clean up along the Enola Low Grade Trail in southern Lancaster County. We are excited to prepare for the opening celebration of the completion of the Martic Forge Trestle. The completion of the trestle restoration and reconstruction of the crosswalk at Red Hill Road will open a continuous 20-mile section of the trail to the public.

Fall is a great time to volunteer and care for this exceptional trail before it officially opens in late October-early November! We will meet at the kiosk and parking area off Red Hill Road.

Volunteers are needed to:

  • cleanup trash and litter (trash bags provided)
  • general weeding
  • mulching
  • minor tree and brush trimming
  • minor graffiti removal

What to bring:

  • water bottle
  • light refreshments will be provided
  • pruners/loppers
  • gloves
  • weeding tool
  • a smile (required)

Please note: Extra tools, supplies, and a few wheelbarrows will be onsite. Volunteers are encouraged to dress for weather and wear protective shoes. If inclement weather is forecasted volunteers will be contacted via email to reschedule.
