Week 12

Dividing up tools before the big hike in! 
Crew one spent their last week of the season working with the Tennessee Eastman Hiking Club on the Beartown Mountain Relocation.  They enjoyed the beautiful views near Roan Mountain and managed to get a lot of work done on the Trail!  They built nearly 500 feet of new sidehill and put in 10 rock steps along the way.  They also built 40 feet of grade dips to help shed water of the future A.T.!

New rock steps

Happy volunteers! : )

Don't worry - Konnarock volunteers don't go hungry!

Painting a white blaze!

Hanging out in camp

Crew 2 also headed south for their final week of the season to work with the Nantahala Hiking Club on the Water Oak Gap Rehab project.  They rehabilitated over 350 feet of trail, installing 22 rock steps and a lot of rock cribbing.  It was assistant crew leader, Kathryn's favorite project of the season (check out her sweet crib wall below)!  
Moving BIG rocks!
