Fall Down on the Trail: 9/29
The Cumberland Valley Rail Trail Council's annual fall fundraiser - Fall Down on the Trail - is coming up Saturday, September 29th. This year's event is special as it is the inauguration of the Adamantine 5 K Run, so named to honor Newville's Civil War cavalry unit, the Adamantine Guard (featured on one of the new historical marker signs along the trail.) Come on out on the 29th and have a good time running the 5 K (9 am) or doing the hike (10:30) from Newville to Oakville, followed by lunch.

Farm Tour: 10/6
The historical signs recently installed on the trail will be dedicated as part of the Cumberland County Farm Tour program on Saturday October 6th. These signs tell the story of the Cumberland Valley Railroad in the Civil War and cover the Agricultural Heritage of the Cumberland Valley. Come on out and enjoy the activities!
