Week 8 - Jenkins Rehab & Dripping Rock

Crew 1 spent the week working with the Piedmont Appalachian Trail Hikers in Bland County on a rehab project on the trail heading towards Jenkins Shelter. They put in 26 log steps and several log waterbars. They also dug over 250ft of drainage ditch to help keep water off the trail.

Digging away!

Hanging out on the new Laurel Creek bridge!

Having a little fun after a hard day of work :)

Some of our wonderful volunteers!

Ready to head out and work for the day!

Crew 2 spent the week working on the Flint Gap to Shelton Graves relocation in North Carolina with the Carolina Mountain Club. They completed over 300 feet of new sidehill and built in several grade dips. They had a very wet week, but still managed to stay in good spirits and still get a lot of work done!

Morning stretches

Trail Crew is a great bonding experience!

Our great Crew Leaders -- don't you want to spend the week with them!?

Who knew getting dirty could be so much fun!

Beautiful flora on the trail
