Our December fundraising challenge is an opportunity for trail users and supporters to show your support for the Redbank Valley Trail and its volunteers. Your donations help us maintain the trail and with rising prices on fuel and materials that is becoming harder to do. Memberships renew in January and count toward the challenge goal. Christmas gifts in honor or memory, benches, picnic tables and shelters all count toward the challenge. There are no administrative costs other than the 2.2% +$.30 PayPal fee (if paid online) and postage to send an acknowledgment letter for your tax records. So all of your donation stays local and goes to help the trail. If you can't make a donation, we're always looking for people to adopt a segment of the trail or help with maintenance. Your support is always appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less

RVTA began working on developing and improving the trail in about August 2010. Most trestles were decked and railed in 2011 to 2014 with the last ones done a few years later in 2018-2019 on the Sligo Spur by a group of dedicated volunteers and board members. Ray Doverspike was instrumental in leading the volunteer crews that did the work on the early bridge work. Ray's Place at the Long Point Tunnel is named in his memory along with the Oak Ridge Bridge. Bea Willeumier was also very much involved in bridge improvements. The bridge over Coder Run is named in her memory.

Weather and time have done their damage and some of the decking boards are deteriorating and require repair. Our volunteers have been making those repairs as needed. Lumber prices have increased in the current supply shortages. Your donations are appreciated to help us make those repairs to keep the bridges in good shape. Groups willing to help with applying preservative are also welcomed. Thank you!

November 29th, 2022 is the national Day of Giving and the kick off of our annual RVTA December challenge. Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 to help with annual trail maintenance and improvements. Almost all work is done by our hardworking volunteers, but we need to provide equipment, fuel and materials. Decking boards on bridges are beginning to wear out. Portojohn costs have increased because of fuel costs, culvert pipes need to be replaced as they wear out. Can you help us with a tax deductible donation? Every donation is appreciated. Please see the flyer for more information. ... See MoreSee Less
