Greenbrier State Park, MD. Last weekend the e-tour found Bigfoot coming off the Appalachian Trail to meet up with his friends at the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club (PATC) Day and Picnic. The PATC, operated by large committees of dedicated and energetic volunteers, maintain 240 miles of the Appalachian Trail (stretching 2175 miles between Maine and Georgia) and also maintain other regional trails totalling over 1000 miles.
Bigfoot checks out a map with Trail Patrol members Courtney, Barb, Murry, Bob and Cindy.
We enjoyed three days of engaging conversation, laughs, and yummy food with the Trail Patrol committee who is the education and outreach section of the PATC. Throughout the year they offer a number of outdoor skills classes for the public including backpacking, hike leadership, CPR, backcountry first aid and Leave No Trace Outdoor Ethics! Thank you to all our new Potomac Appalachian Trail Club friends for the hard work you continue to accomplish!
Get outside and take a class to have some fun and improve your skills!
