The Georges Highland Path, built and maintained by Georges River Land Trust, is a 40-mile system of “conservation trails” that gives hikers a unique look at the St. George River watershed. The goal of the Path is to help people forge a close relationship with the land and to develop an active interest in protecting this wonderful region. All proceeds from the golf tournament will be used to help maintain the Path as safe and enjoyable for hikers, including routine trail maintenance, new bog and foot-bridges, parking lot improvements, and seasonal trails staff.
