One improvement is underway and a second is awaiting funding for Eden Township's section of the Enola Low Grade Rail Trail.
The township is using millings - the asphalt and stone ground off a road before it can be resurfaced - to improve the trail east of Hess Rd.
"We're trying to get people out of the mud," said township roadmaster Mark Rudy.
The trail from Hess Rd. to near Bushong Rd. runs through a series of cuts on the former rail line. Because the surrounding land is above the trail, water drains onto it and then lays there.
The millings, which have been donated to the township, raise the walking surface so it is above the water that lays in the cuts.
"How far we can go with this depends on how much [milling] we get," Rudy said.
The township has also had plans drawn up to build a pavilion at the Bushong Rd. trailhead.
"It will cost us about $4,500 to build and we don't have the money for that. So we asking people to donate funds for this project," the roadmaster said.
Anyone interested in contributing to the cost of the pavilion can call the township's municipal office at 717-786-7915.
