The Big Dig on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail

The Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail posted this call to action in the latest edition of the Carolina Mountain Club newsletter:

The Watauga and South Ashe task forces invite you to be a part of the completion of the last section of unfinished trail along the Blue Ridge Parkway from Bamboo Gap south to U.S. 321 near Blowing Rock.

Workdays are on Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, July 17 starting at 8:30 a.m. We will meet at the Thunderhill Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway at milepost 290.3. This is about 1.5 miles north of U.S. 321 near Blowing Rock.

Camping is available at the Price Lake Campgrounds for the nights of July 15 and July 16. Registered volunteers may receive fee waivers. Advance reservations are necessary and should be made as soon as possible, but no later than July 6. Contact Allen de Hart at

To RSVP, or if you have any questions about the work days, contact John Lanman, the Watauga Task Force Leader for the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail at, or Allen de Hart at
