Week 8

Crew 1 went back to Roan Highlands to continue work on the relocations. They completed over 500 feet of new sidehill, along with 1000 feet of tread definition. They painted on some blazes, completing and opening up one of the new relocations. They spent another beautiful week camped out at Overmountain Shelter. Lucky ducks...

Crew 2 headed out to the Bee Cove Rehab just south of the Smoky Mountains. The crew enjoyed an awesome campsite just below the Fontana Dam. They put in 11 rock steps, 2 log steps and 28 feet of log cribbing! They also accomplished over 200 feet of tread definition over the week. They'll be back week 9 to continue their work. Check out photos from the week...
