Trail Work Days!

Thanks for your interest in helping steward the trails on the Grandfather District!

 

We have work days scheduled for the trails around Old Fort on the first Friday and second Saturday of each month from February through May. See more details and sign up for those below. We'll post the dates and details for August through November over the summer. 

Work days will start and finish at the Old Fort Ride House beside Kitsbow and Hillman Beer at 59 Commerce St. Old Fort NC 28762. Please wear sturdy shoes and long pants, and bring water, snacks, and any personal protective equipment (PPE) you have. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting our volunteer group size to 8, and asking participants to socially distance and avoid carpooling to the trailhead. Once our work day is wrapped up, we'll drop our tools back off at the Ride House where folks are welcome to stay for a bite and beverage.

 

Send any questions to mike@g5trailcollective.org. Thanks!
