MST Trail Building Day

The Carolina Mountain Club is extending an invitation to anyone interested in helping to extend the Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MST) this Saturday, March 20th.

The club hopes to have a large group to help complete another section of the MST heading south to the Soco Gap Overlook.

Volunteers can meet at the Moose Cafe at 9:00 AM for car pooling. Or you can meet at the Soco Gap Overlook of the Blue Ridge Parkway at 9:30 A.M. (intersection of Blue Ridge Parkway and Rt. 19 near Maggie Valley).

Tools will be available but if you have digging tools of your own, please bring them.

No prior experience is required. For more information, please contact Piet Bodenhorst.

This is very cool. There is a similar thing here in the Bay area where the Rails to Trails is helping to connect 500 miles of bike trails. I'm going to be in Charlotte soon and will try to get up there to volunteer.
