DAMASCUS, Va. - You now have the chance to leave your mark on the Appalachian Trail, and we're not talking about your footprints.
The Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the AT Community of Damascus have launched what's being called the Community Pathway Project. You can now buy engraved bricks that will re-pave the sidewalk from South Smith Street to Trestle Street in downtown Damascus.
Money raised will go toward the upkeep and improvement of the Appalachian Trail according to group member Brady Adcock. "We're asking for $100 donations per brick, and what you are going to get is your name on the Aappalachian Trail forever," he said.
Orders will be accepted through the end of summer, or until they sell 2,180 bricks, which represents the total miles of the AT from Maine to Georgia.
