Anyone attempting to "work" on the trail should register with either the Keystone Trails Association or DCNR as a volunteer rather than take matters into their own hands. Proper tools are available for volunteers and it allows the bureau to keep a record of what work is done and possibly allocate resources to assist if known about. Hacking your way through the state forest is actually illegal and could get you cited by the rangers for destruction of public property and state resources. Add to the fact that it is a natural area and you may unknowingly harm sensitive vegetation. There are eight plant species, one butterfly species, and four communities of concern in the natural area. If you don't know what they are, it would be ill advised to just start randomly cutting stuff down.
