Blackwater Canyon Bike Ride Cancelled This Year

After careful consideration and with the cancellation of Leaf Peepers, we have decided to also cancel our annual Bike Ride. We still encourage everyone to go out and enjoy themselves, just stay safe!

9/12/21 Blackwater Canyon Half Marathon Success!

It’s a wrap. Hard to top a race where a bald eagle soars low and slow over the START minutes before takeoff. So fitting on this 9/11 anniversary. Sarah Forbes - Queen for the day. She runs a great race. Thanks to the board, volunteers, and AmeriCorp support.


9/12/21 New AmeriCorps

Welcome Daniel Flood, AFNHA AmeriCorp! And thank-you Town of Hendricks for allowing Highlands Trail Foundation to utilize office space at Hendricks City Hall (HCH).
