ALPINE CLUB FUN OR WORK HIKES

Be sure to bring water and lunch, and wear clothes and shoes suitable for the day’s weather! Please read the Liability section before participating in an Alpine Club event.

MEETUP OPTIONS (Not applicable for Spring 2022 Work Hikes.)

The Alpine Club maintains the Loyalsock Trail (LT), which traverses Lycoming and Sullivan Counties. During work hikes we will concentrate on clearing the LT of debris, cutting over-hanging branches and brush, and clipping plants that may interfere with hikers’ view of the blazes.

Regular Alpine Club members understand the importance of  annual spring work. For anyone interested in helping to maintain this well-used and acclaimed hiking trail, here is a great opportunity for you to give back to the hiking community which has provided well-maintained trails wherever you may roam. It’s also a great way to share some time with experienced local hikers!

The Alpine Club has loppers and clippers for use on these work hikes, but bringing your own is a great idea. Be sure to bring water and lunch, and wear clothes and shoes suitable for the day’s weather!

Please help maintain the Loyalsock Trail (LT). Your help is crucial in maintaining this historic trail which has existed since 1951. Dave will determine the work area each day. If you are willing to work on one of the eight trail sections or a portion of the LT at some other time, please contact Dave Dahl..

If you would like to be e-mailed or called when any hikes are planned by a member during the year; or to get an e-reminder before a work hike; or if you would like to volunteer to lead a hike, Contact Dave Dahl at: mailto:[email protected] or 570-916-6702 .
