Trail Work Days!

Thanks for your interest in helping steward the trails on the Grandfather District of Pisgah National Forest!

 

We have work days scheduled for the trails around Old Fort on the first Friday and second Saturday of each month. See more details and sign up for those below. We host a Trail Work Weekend a few times a year, with lodging and Saturday supper provided by Camp Grier. 

Please wear sturdy shoes and long pants, and dress for all kinds of weather, as we may be higher in elevation and we may experience varying temperatures and precipitation. Be sure to pack plenty of water and snacks since we will be working in the Forest (and fuel up with a hearty breakfast before).

Each Trail Work Day or Work Weekend will have different meeting points and trail work destinations, so be sure to read the info thoroughly and open any pre-workday emails from our team. 

We look forward to having you join us! Send any volunteer-related questions to mike@g5trailcollective.org
