In its 9th year, the Twilight Trail Walk attracted Peters Township residents in droves to participate in a chief effort to maintain the staple passageway.

There may be some geotechnical exploration on the trail to do next week, he said. Until early November, Silvestri is urging residents to follow posted signs and detours—Justabout Road to Thomas Road.
