Thanks to the hard work of many volunteers (see November/December TW, page 1), the Highlands Trail has reached the Delaware River! The Trail Conference will be celebrating the achievement on Saturday, May 16, at an event cosponsored by the Appalachian Mountain Club, which will be continuing the trail across the 13-county Pennsylvania Highlands region, and the Borough of Reigelsville, PA, where the new section will begin.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Roebling Bridge will be followed by a 0.5 mile walk from New Jersey to the borough park in Pennsylvania for refreshments and signup for hikes at Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary, a bike ride on the Delaware Canal Towpath, and paddling demos on the Delaware River. Handicapped parking is available. The event will happen rain or shine.

Meet: Noon at the Roebling Bridge located on Delaware Road off of Route 611in Reigelsville.
Parking: Riegelsville Borough Park located off of Route 611 on Ash Lane and street parking in the borough.
