About the event
G5 volunteer crews and The McDowell Tech Trail school classes have been hard at work benching the newest trail from Old Fort to point lookout trail It's the perfect time of year to build new trail, and who better to work with than Lisa Jennings herself? Join the crew to make your mark on the land and hear some rarely heard history of the area directly from the researcher herself. It's a rare opportunity to help build a brand new trail in the National Forest, an even rarer opportunity to build with the recreation and trails director of Grandfather Ranger District.
Crew will use hoes, rakes, mcclouds, pulaski and THE BEAST tool to build new and finish pre started benching sections.
Difficulty rating: 3/5: .5 mile hike each direction on fresh, uneven ground, use of digging tools
