On July 23, 2016, Eagle Scout Tanner Lofgran and his crew of 17 refurbished a badly-overgrown and wet section of the Sugarland Run Trail. They had to deal with 90+ temperatures and angry yellow-jackets (one volunteer was stung 6 times and had to be evacuated--but he is OK). Tanner designed the drier route and coordinated a team effort to lift a huge log up from the stream bed to anchor a section of trail .

Here are some photos of Tanner's team at work!

William P. Niedringhaus was the first to envision the Fairfax Cross County Trail (www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/cct/). He led several Cross-County Hikes from Lorton to Great Falls in 1998-2001 to promote the idea. The trail officially opened in 2007. Bill won an Elie Doyle award in 2001 for Cross-County Trail advocacy and shared one in 2007 with five others (including PHTA board member Robin Rentsch). He is currently president of the PHTA and Fairfax Trails and Streams. Bill designs, builds and maintains many miles of trails.
