The Montour Trail and REI jointly hold a Trail Summit at the REI Settlers Ridge Store on March 28 from 10AM to 3PM. This is the seventh year that REI and Montour Trail have partnered on this event.  For those who represent one of the regional trails, this is a great opportunity to interact with trail users and provide information about your trail. For everyone else, it’s a chance to learn about the many recreational resources around the tri-state area.

REI provides tables placed throughout the store. If your trail group would like to attend, contact Don Thobaben   dthobaben@comcast.net for additional information.
