National Trails Day Saturday June 5, 2010 - Patapsco Valley State Park - 08:30 AM to 01:00 PM
Patapsco Valley State Park is partnering with REI ( both stores -
Timonium & College Park ), MORE, The Friends of Patapsco Valley and
Heritage Greenway and Trail Conservancy to create the biggest trail day
We could potentially see 250 volunteers from every walk of life! REI is
handling registration and food. MORE is providing leaders for all the
trail worksites and tools. FPVHG is leading stream cleanups. Worksites

Projects range from stream cleanups to blazing to maintaining waterbars

bench cutting, grade reversals, knicks, rolling grade dips, step
building, deberming, good night irene! - just about everything you can
