Residents of Adams County came together yesterday to start planning a portion of the Grand History Trail leading south from Gettysburg to Emittsburg Maryland. The event was sponsored by Healthy Adams Bicycle/Pedestrian Inc. (HABPI). The group included County Commissioners, Adams County Economic Planners, individuals from the Gettysburg Battlefield National Park, members of HABPI, national and regional representatives from the Rails to Trails Conservancy and the Executive Director of the York County Rail Trail Authority.
The energy of this group to move the trail forward was overwhelmingly positive. The value of the GTH in terms of health, wealth, and joy was clear to all.
