2019 Trail Day: Harlem Valley Appalachian Trail Community

Join us as we celebrate the Appalachian Trail and the Harlem Valley A.T. Community!

There are over 40 communities along the Appalachian Trail's corridor that have been recognized in The Appalachian Trail Community™ program. These towns and cities are considered assets by all that use the A.T., and many of these towns act as good friends and neighbors to the Trail. Join us as we celebrate the culture and contributions of our Harlem Valley A.T. Community.
