WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Slowly but surely, Washington Township's recreation gem is starting to take shape.
Next week a half-dozen teenagers enrolled in a federal work program will begin hacking away at the three miles of hiking trails at the 150-acre Pine Hill Recreation Area on the mountain overlooking the community. Over the next six weeks they will clean the existing trails and blaze at least two more miles of new ones, said Gerald R. Zeigler, coordinator of the park development project.
Zeigler said the trails are covered with debris from winter. Brush growing into the trails will be cut back, he said.
The park is being used by Little League and Pony League baseball teams. A new soccer field should be ready for fall play and a mini-pavilion has been built.
