Week 10 - Roan Highlands & Flint Gap

Crew 1 went back to work with the Tennessee Eastman Hiking and Canoeing Club in the Roan Highlands. They put in several log steps and carried in a lot of gravel to help sustain the tread. They got to hang out with some great club members and even some goats!

A beautiful place to spend a week working hard!

Crew 2 continued for their third and final week on the Flint Gap to Shelton Graves relocation. They built over 500 feet of new sidehill! The most in a single week on this project this season! Great work! The crew had a lot of fun digging new trail and taking some time to jump in the water to cool off.
