Trail Flagging, Shelter Damage

"Put the trail here!!!"

In addition to the recent project checks, the staff have been out flagging/reflagging relocations and doing some training. On a recent training, the crew headed up to Peter's Mountain (near Pearisburg, VA) and scoped out some recent roof damage sustained at the Pine Swamp Branch Shelter (RATC). As you can see by the picture, it's going to take a bit of work to clean this one up. In addition, the shelter is in designated Wilderness so no chainsaws!


Also, check out the description of the whole event on the images of the trail register. I'd be a bit weary of windy days from now on....
