About Our Projects


The Acme Treadway Company is a "roving" PATC crew. That means that we can, and do, conduct projects where we are needed where PATC maintains trails, from Virginia to southern Pennsylvania.

Our Mission

The mountains aren’t there to be viewed from afar. They call to us to come and experience them first-hand. We answer their invitation.


What We Do

We build trails to last. We build them to protect the environment as well as to provide a means of personal discovery, recreation, and contemplation.


Projects Scrapbook
