On Saturday, May 16, 2020, the SSRT had plenty of volunteers to work along Casanova Road from Black Bear Trailhead to Black Moshannon Park. This five mile section of road was posted for atv/utv use. The volunteers collected a pick up load of trash. We had numerous people stop by and thank the crew for collection the trash. We had numerous thumbs up for posting the road with atv signs. Now, everyone, please obey the signs and laws. This is a wonderful connection to Black Moshannon Park and we want to provide a positive economic impact on the area. No you cannot ride atvs from your Black Moshannon Park campground to Casanova Rd and no you cannot ride anywhere else in the park except Casanova Road where posted and McCord Road where posted. This does connect us to Philipsburg legally on an atv/utv. Thanks to all our atv/utv volunteers who collected the trash along newly legalized atv/utv roads.
The Snow Shoe Rails to Trails held work details on the Bloody Skillet May 11, 12, 13. This work is coordinated with DCNR Bob Fitterling, done in preparation for Friday of Memorial Day Weekend when all DCNR Trails usually open. However, with the Covid 19, DCNR was not certain if the trails would be open or not. We are waiting to hear from them.
The crews cut fallen trees from trails, brushed tree limbs back to safe distance, collected trash from trail and also State and Township Roads. The trail is clear of any safety issues and ready to open when DCNR decides to make that decision.
We want to thank all the volunteers that helped with these work details. You all come through every year demonstrating the great community service you provide as an organization. The officers thank you for your service.
