The Trail & Town Alliance of Harpers Ferry-Bolivar is a standing committee of the Harpers Ferry-Bolivar Historic Town Foundation. The Alliance now serves as the steering committee for our two towns’ participation in the Appalachian Trail Community Program and the Canal Town Partnership. As such, we build coalitions among towns, partner with the National Park Service, trail organizations, and the business community.

Trail & Town Alliance has been busy with cleanups and other trail work during recent months. We have added a new trail (the Yellow) in Bolivar Nature Park, participated in Canal Community Day by cleaning up trash from the C&O Canal towpath across from Harpers Ferry, and cleaned up town land behind the Woman’s Club Park in Harpers Ferry.

In the meantime, we have proposals out to the West Virginia Department of Natural Resources and the town of Bolivar to develop new trails in the area. Thanks to all the great volunteers who have joined in these efforts.

If you’d like to get involved, join our mailing list. Otherwise, you can send us an e-mail. Together we’re making our towns even more beautiful and an even better place to walk!
