If you hike the trails, we welcome you to join our volunteers in maintaining those trails.  PATC is the Trail Guardian for over 1000 miles of trails in Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia & Virginia, including 240 miles of AT.  Our territory begins in Central Pennsylvania at Pine Grove Furnace, continues thru Maryland & West Virginia to Harpers Ferry and extends into the mid-point of Virginia, including the Shenandoah National Park.  In addition, we maintain other regional trails, for a total of over 1,000 miles of trails, 1,000 acres of land and more than 80 shelters and cabins. Check out where PATC maintains trails.

Or contact one of our District Managers about volunteering in their district.
