News and progress along the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail
On June 18, 2016, Jack Whitehead completed his Eagle Project to improve the PHNST at Bles Park. Jack improved 500 feet at the western end of the park. This hilly, rocky section was badly in need of widening and leveling of tread. Jack obtained permission from the nearby homeowners association to access the site--this made it much easier to bring tools and supplies.
A second Eagle project is in the works to improve the trail from Jack's area eastward toward the main part of Bles Park.
Jack's project stops at the end of the Loudoun County Parkland. There is a sign there indicating where the park property ends.
Below are photos from Jack's team as they did their work.
