Carolina Mountain Club - Remote Overnight Crew (April 27-28)



APRIL 27-28: APPALACHIAN TRAIL RESTORATION

Join the Carolina Mountain Club as we restore the A.T. near Hot Springs NC on this weekend overnight.  We’ll be out rehabbing the trail and making new friends.  No experience necessary, experienced CMC trail crews will be on site to supervise and train.  If you have always wanted to do trail work to give back, this is your opportunity.  A great learning experience awaits!

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A CMC MEMBER TO COME ON THESE WORK DAYS.

We will have release forms you can fill out before we start work.   If you are under 18, you must have a parent or guardian with you.

Please wear sturdy boots, long pants, work gloves, food, and cool weather camping gear.  We will provide tools.

Please contact Paul Curtin at: [email protected] with questions
