Asheville Area Trail Workday

We will be rehabilitating the trail to Mt. Pisgah. We will divide into groups doing rock work, water diversions and lopping.

Meet at the French Broad Overlook on the BRP (just south of the entrance ramp by the Arboretum and Hwy 191 at MP 394) at 8:15. We will return by 3:00.

Wear sturdy boots and bring work gloves, lunch and plenty of water. If you have a hazel hoe, bring it, but we have plenty of tools.

You will need to file a trail work agreement with CMC, the Forest Service and the Park Service if you haven’t already done so. This is a liability issue and must be completed. The form is at http://www.carolinamountainclub.org if you are a CMC member. Paper forms will be available at the work site for others.

MST 41st Birthday Hike
Sep 7 – Sep 9 all-day

Between Friday, September 7th and Sunday the 9th get out for a hike on the MST!

Help us collectively accumulate a huge number of miles walking on the MST across North Carolina in celebration of this beautiful trail and those who hike and maintain it.

Walk where you want anywhere on the 1175 miles (or paddle the Neuse or Yadkin sections), when you want during the weekend, with whomever you want – your hiking buddies, troop, congregation, grandkids (it is grandparents weekend, coincidentally!) This is a great opportunity to introduce a newbie to the MST.

After you’ve hiked, log onto our website, and click on the form to report all the miles you and your hiking partners have completed. After the weekend is over, we’ll share how many miles we hiked together, and any other superlatives that we may achieve over the weekend.
