The connection, just west of McDonald in Robinson Township (Washington County) at the old railroad trestle, allows north- and south-bound trail users on the Montour Trail to travel east and west on the Panhandle Trail (and vise versa). It's an important addition for both recreation purposes and economic development.
David Guo had an article in yesterday's P-G about the festivities. Yesterday's Trib also had coverage.
THANK YOU to all those trail volunteers who made this possible! Our community is much in your debt for your tireless commitment to this important project.
