Dan Heibel Adopts BYLT’s Black Swan Trail

Dan Heibel BS TrailMeet Dan Heibel, the new adopter of the Black Swan Trail. The two mile Black Swan Trail is located near the town of Smartsville.

Dan will be retiring soon and was looking for a meaningful activity to keep him active.

“Adopting this trail is a great way for me to enjoy nature and the outdoors. It also helps me achieve my goal of getting outside and getting exercise,” said Dan.

Dan learned about becoming a Trail Adopter after volunteering with the Land Trust trail building crew. He says he has met many interesting folk during his volunteer time.

As a boy, Dan grew up in the woods of Pennsylvania. He says trail work comes naturally to him. Now a Lake Wildwood resident, the Black Swan Trail is located just a short drive from his home.

“The trail is in my neighborhood and I want to protect what little nature we have left,” Dan said.
