Crew 1 spent the week working with the Natural Bridge Appalachian Trail Club on the Thunder Ridge relocation. They were build 600 feet of new sidehill -- wow! They also put in a few rock steps and check steps along the way to help properly shed water off the trail.

Crew 2 went up near Catawba to work with the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club on the Dragons Tooth rehab project. It's a very rocky, challenging section of trail that sees a lot of visitors every season. They rehabilitated 280 feet of trail with 39 rock steps and 35 cubic feet of junk cribbing to keep hikers on the trail.
