More than 20 volunteers turned out recently for a fiveday work session sponsored by the Keystone Trail Association and the Standing Stone Trail Club, in cooperation with the PA DCNR Bureau of Forestry, Bureau of State Parks, the Narrows Gun Club and the Fulton County Conservation District. The dedicated volunteers worked to relocate more than four miles of the Standing Stone Hiking Trail to the top of Cove Mountain between Cowans Gap State Park and Narrows north of Knobsville. The Standing Stone Trail travels more than 70 miles from Cowans Gap State Park north to Greenwood Furnace State Park between Huntingdon and State College and connects the Mid-State and Tuscarora hiking trails. Jim Garth of Huntingdon County and Frank Donlevy of Mechanicsburg are pictured with signage installed at the intersection of the Standing Stone and Sharpe trails atop Cove Mountain. Mel Cooper, president of the Standing Stone Trail Club (http://www.hike-sst.org/) reported that the group is planning further improvements and maintenance of the Standing Stone Trail and volunteers are always welcomed. 084p1.jpg
