Mission Statement



PATC is a non-profit public service organization responsible for the upkeep and improvement of 970 miles of hiking trails, 30 shelters, and 23 cabins in Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia. This includes 240 miles of the Appalachian Trail, and 730 miles of other hiking trails in National Parks, National Forests, State Parks, Regional Parks, and local parks. Work on trails, shelters, and cabins is performed solely by volunteer overseers. As of December 1995, there were over 300 volunteers performing this work so that the public could enjoy the many trails in the PATC region. PATC's volunteer efforts in 1995 resulted in the contribution of more than 24,000 hours of manpower to various federal, state, and local government agencies.
