MILE MARKERS/MEMORIAL PLAQUES
The mile markers are in memory of Tom Waltman who served as vice-president of our non-profit organization Rails to Trails of Bedford County Inc. Friends of Tom Waltman have raised monies for the placement of mile markers along the 10.6 mile H&BT Trail as well as a bronze plaque at the Tatesville and Riddlesburg Trailhead areas. The bronze plaque indicates the mile markers are placed in memory of Tom Waltman and includes the organ donor inspired poem “The Legacy.” Kudos to friends Boyde Swindell and Roger Bowman for their efforts in this project!
H&BT Rails to Trail Development: Northern trail construction is slated to begin in summer of 2019 with completion expected by fall 2019. An additional 1.5 miles of trail will be available for your enjoyment as well as a picnic area/historical interpretive site at the Red Cut area.
PICNIC TABLES: Many thanks to Leadership Bedford County Class of 2018 for the donation of three picnic tables. The Broad Top Township supervisors have decided to use them for the planned picnic area at Red Cut at the end of northern trail extension.
WHAT A BLAST!!
