Week 4 - Beartown Mountain & Paint Mountain

Crew 1 headed down to work with the Tennesse Eastman Hiking Club to begin work on the Beartown Mountain Relocation. The relocation is working to eliminate a very steep, eroded section of trail. The crew put it 10 rock steps and built over 400 feet of trail. They also built several rock crib walls.

Crew 2 worked with the Nantahala Hiking Club and continued on the Paint Mountain Relocation in North Carolina. They built over 950 feet of new side hill trail, completing the relocation. There are just a few blazes to paint and the trail will be ready to hike!
