Get Involved

Since authorized in 1983, the PHT--as a vision and a physical network--has evolved and continues to evolve. You can be part of this evolution by working with PHT management partners, by participating in volunteer opportunities, and by participating in planning processes that affect the development, conservation, character and experience of PHT segments and corridors.

Two volunteers work on the shores of the Potomac River.

Volunteers are the heart of the PHT network.
