The entire group started up the Blue trail to the rock pile at Station 10.  From Station 10 the group split up. The group led by Chad went to Nittany Mall and Tom Smyth overlooks. They widened the trails, cut undergrowth, and cleared 3 downed trees as well as 2 hangers. The other group led by Brian, continued to the Little Flat and Penns Valley overlooks trimming branches, cutting the undergrowth and clearing saplings. The two groups then met up traveled the White trail from Station 6 to Station 5 and then Station 3 at the Mike Lynch Overlook.  Along the way, the team cleared 2 downed trees across the trail.

The Conservancy extends their thanks to both Sigma Nu and Omega Phi Alpha for their support of the Mountain.
