The Mid State Trail Association is sponsoring a trail care work weekend August 25-27, based out of Ravensburg State Park, focused on replacing the bridge over White Deer Creek. The current bridge, located in Bald Eagle State Forest at the base of the northern flank of Naked Mountain between RB Winter State Park and Route 80, spans the creek on 30 foot long stringers that are badly deteriorated. Working in close coordination with Forestry, Woolrich Regional Manager, Joe Healey, will oversee the dismantling of the old bridge and the construction of its replacement which will be built atop 40 foot long poles set astride new abutments. Volunteers will be needed to realize this major trail project. The MSTA will host a pizza party at the park Saturday night for everyone who comes out to lend a hand.
