Somewhere deep in Pennsylvania


AWE, the exhaust manufacturer based in Horsham, Pennsylvania, has partnered with Tread Lightly! to re-route one of the East Coast’s premier offroading trails, “Barney Rubble,” in support of the Boy Scouts of America. 

“This was a much-needed project to help clean up the trail usage up a stream. Trail riders have been driving up this stream instead of staying on the marked trails. This has led to erosion, contamination, and deconstruction of the natural area. This project repaired all of that and is going to really change the landscape. Trenton and his team did a great job and worked their butts off to get this done,” stated Kyle Buchter of Off Road Consulting.

Volunteers gathered at the Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area to support Trenton Kautz’s Eagle Scout project. Trenton and the volunteers worked to protect a mountain stream at the base of the Barney Rubble Trail. They also cleaned up debris and installed educational signage informing trail users about the area being closed for re-naturalization purposes and the sensitive area.  Volunteers used 600 linear feet of timber plus deadfall to create trail barriers to block off user created trails. They also removed 750 pounds of dumping debris and trash from the area, including old PVC water pipes used to collect spring water for buildings that no longer exist.

“Without the trails, what would we do? Maybe backgammon? The trails in the Northeast--close to AWE HQ--are literally the arteries of this off-road community. Without Tread Lightly!, our world would be a lot smaller, and a lot less protected. AWE is pleased to support the Jeep Badge of Honor Trail, one of the North East's crown jewels. We're honored to have participated in its rejuvenation," stated Jesse Kramer, AWE’s VP of Marketing. 

AWE is best known in the off-road world for its high-clearance, made-in-the-USA exhausts focused on JL and JK Wranglers, JT Gladiators, 392 WranglersBroncos, and the Bronco Raptor.
