As mentioned in previous posts, Danny Bernstein from the Carolina Mountain Club has organized a series of trail workdays in the Great Smoky Mountains this summer and fall. The workdays are in conjunction with the Trails Forever program.
The final workday is scheduled for next Saturday, October 16th, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Volunteers will be working on the Twentymile Loop Trail out of the Twentymile Ranger Station in the southwestern area of the Park. Work will include cleaning drains, pruning vegetation, and digging out sloughed off bank to redefine the trail head.
If you would like to get involved and lend a much needed hand, please contact Christine Hoyer at 828.497.1949 or email her at Christine_Hoyer@nps.gov.
