An additional trail clean-up event will be hosted in Liberty by the Liberty Middle School Class of 2027, National Junior Honor Society, and the Liberty Middle School Wellness Committee; along with other community partners. The Liberty event starts at 10 a.m. at the Bridge & Tunnel Brewery, 50 Lake Street Liberty.
“The Sullivan O&W Rail Trail is a trail for everyone,” said Heather Jacksy, from Sullivan County Planning and member of the Alliance. “National Trails Day is part of a year-long series of seasonal events.”
