Join the Konnarock Trail Crew from Wednesday, June 7, at 5 p.m. until Monday, June 12, at 8 p.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 5 restoring a heavily used section of the Appalachian Trail near Wind Rock. Part of the A.T. near Wind Rock consists of a steep and eroded section of Trail. This multi-year project focuses on building an approximately one-mile stretch of new, sustainable, Wilderness-grade trail in order to avoid a steep and eroded section of the existing Appalachian Trail. Minimalist rock structures will be utilized as necessary. 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 1.5-mile hike to the project site (three-miles roundtrip each day), with approximately 400-feet in elevation gain.
Gear and tools, meals, and training will be provided!
Rendezvous Location: Sugar Grove, Virginia
