The weekend of June 6th 2014 is one of the highlights of the year in Pine Grove Furnace State Park, near Gardners, Pennsylvania. That's when the Appalachian Trail Museum's Trail Days celebration is scheduled at the unique storehouse of Appalachian Trail goodies.
The 4th Annual Hall of Fame Banquet will be served on Friday evening, when several individuals will be honored for the sacrificial efforts to preserve and maintain the Appalachian Trail.
Saturday, June 7th will be filled with music, organized hikes, a time to meet this year's Hall of Fame's latest members, along with a reunion of thru-hikers from previous years and a dandy pot-luck supper with mouth-watering brats.
The Appalachian Trail Museum's Trail Days festival will also let you speak with the author of a new book on the AT. At 3 PM, Richard Judy will be there to talk about his interesting novel, "THRU: An Appalachian Trail Love Story." He might even sign copies of his book for you!
Come and tell your Trail stories around the evening's campfire. Don't worry about being confined by the truth, nobody will believe you anyway. So, tell your tallest tale, even if you must make one up.
The Appalachian Trail Museum's Trail Days will -- someday -- be one of the highlights of our beloved path.
Perhaps these pictures will provides thousands of words of encouragement for you to visit the Appalachian Trail Museum.
