What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
The plan is to meet at the Wampum Junction Train Station at 9:30 am. From there we will carpool to the Shaffer Rd Trail Head [masked], [masked]) for an optional 1/2 mile out and back to Hell's Hollow Falls (Not NCT) - it should be flowing strong with the rains Saturday Night and Sunday Morning. Then hike back to Wampum. The hike is 6.4 miles of road walk and 3.8 miles of foot path (which may be muddy).
Join the Wampum Chapter at the Brighton Hot Dog Shoppe, 2625 Constitution Blvd., Beaver Falls for our monthly 'nuts and bolts' discussion of what's going on with the North Country Trail in Beaver and Lawrence counties. We always have hikes, trail work, new trail through the woods, outreach activities, and special projects in the works and all input is appreciated.
(2.4 miles; Moderate Difficulty Rating) 10:30 AM, Saturday, March 16, 2019 This is an out and back hike. We will meet at the Wampum Train Station, 303 Main Street, Wampum, PA 16157, take a small road walk along route 18 to jump on the trail head that leads to the Wampum Underground Shelter which was recently built with efforts of several of our chapter members. The shelter will be the turnaround point to hike back to the train station. After the hike, attendees and volunteers may enjoy a hot dog, beverage and a pot luck picnic. Note: In the past this celebration has been combined with the Sasquatch search, which takes hikers up a hillside where Bigfoot sightings were reported in 2004. We will be hiking that area in November this year instead. However, we are hiking only a few short miles away from there, so you never know..... ;)
We'll be meeting at 6:00 PM on the 3rd Monday of the month for our monthly business meeting and presentation. The meeting is being held at the Wampum Junction Train Station, at the south end of town, 303 Main St., right beside the bridge over the Beaver River. The information about the North Country Trail is always good, the conversation and discussion is always lively, and we appreciate everyone's input on our projects, hikes, and our building the future of the North Country Trail in southwestern PA. Refreshments will be served - all are welcome to join us.
