Join the Konnarock Trail Crew from Wednesday, May 3, at 5 p.m. until Monday, May 8, at 8 a.m. to complete essential trail maintenance on the Appalachian Trail. Tools and training provided!
Enjoy several days of rehabbing the Trail and making new friends. Crew 1 will spend Session 1 restoring a heavily used section of the Appalachian Trail near Woody Gap. Part of the A.T. between Woody Gap and Preacher’s Rock consists of a steep and rugged section that needs to be restored via treadway hardening and the installation of proper drainage features. This crew will be working to mitigate these treadway erosion issues by installing drainage features and placing long-lasting rock steps into the Trail’s tread. This project is taking place in a federally designated Wilderness area, so no mechanized tools will be used. Each workday there will be a roughly half-mile hike to the project site (one-mile daily roundtrip), with minimal elevation gain. However, there is several hundred feet of elevation gain along the worksite to Preacher’s Rock.
Gear and tools, meals, and training will be provided!
