Week 3 - Paint Mountain Relocation

While Crew 1 was spending time down in Georgia, Crew 2 headed off to work on the Paint Mountain Relocation with the Nantahala Hiking Club in North Carolina. They built 1000 ft of new sustainable sidehill trail - finishing up nearly half of the relocation! It was hard work digging through a lot of roots, but they pushed through and built some beautiful trail! Great work!!

Digging sidehill all week long!

Wildlife! Moving a turtle off the trail...

Before the digging begins...


Morning stretches and some evening games

Keep up the great work!

The final product, recovered with leaves to protect the soil

Beautiful view from the hike in to the worksite

Whew... this trail building is hard work!

Great place to setup camp for the week!

More digging...

Crew Leader Kathryn - always keeping everyone in good spirits!

Good times - packed in the van!
