      We need a volunteer to assume the duties of the Appalachian Trail (AT) Supervisor for WTC. In short, this position is a WTC Council position responsible for maintaining the WTC section of the AT and interfacing with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC).

      The WTC section of the AT is 7 miles long near the Delaware Water Gap in Pennsylvania. There is a shelter, privy, and bulletin board on the section. Club members volunteer to help with any maintenance tasks so this is not an individual effort on the trail. Normally maintenance trips are only a few times a year.

      WTC is one of only 31 maintaining clubs for the AT. The AT is a unit of the National Park Service and WTC is a respected partner. We meet NPS staff and other local trail maintaining clubs at regional meetings twice a year, which makes WTC known to a wider community, more than just to our local community.

      WTC has been an AT maintaining club since 1995. If we cannot find a volunteer we may have to relinquish our long partnership with ATC and NPS. At 2193.1 miles, the Appalachian Trail is the longest hiking-only footpath in the world, ranging from Maine to Georgia. It traverses 14 states and sees roughly 3 million visitors a year. Of those, there were approximately 930 successful thru-hikers on the AT in 2019.

      Jan King was the AT Supervisor for over a decade and can answer any questions and provide details about the position.

      The AT is internationally recognized, and WTC has a long tradition of supporting and maintaining the AT. With 640 WTC members, one of you can step up to continue this rewarding experience.

      Please consider volunteering for this important WTC position.

      President
