PATC is fortunate to have a diverse and supportive group of partners and affiliates, ranging from federal agencies and state and local governments, to civic organizations and corporate sponsors.
The club coordinates its activities on the Appalachian Trail with both the Appalachian Trail Park Office, an office of the National Park Service. Our trail work in Shenandoah National Park, Rock Creek Park, Harpers Ferry National Historic Park, and the C&O Canal is managed in cooperation with the professional resource managers in those Parks. State agencies in Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Virgina assist the club with trail management in their respective areas. Click here for links to our government partners.
The club's volunteer partners include organizations such as The Appalachian Trail Conservancy, American Hiking Society and many others......
