    FoMVT cleared the sight line at spot on the trail north of Old Town where the trail splits. Im super proud of this one. We will be doing similar work this month at Four Mile Run Trail and the Daingerfield Island S-Curve.

    I could use seven more volunteers on Saturday to fix the vegetation issues at the junction of Four Mile Run Trail and the Mount Vernon Trail.

    If you e been through recently you e probably had to duck to avoid taking a branch to the face. We will also be fixing the long standing issues with poor sight lines by removing vegetation.
