Recent heavy rains, about 5 inches on April 28-29 alone, have left their mark on the trail. They've clogged up the culvert inlets that direct water away from the trail, and FLMSP volunteers have been working hard to correct the problems. Don Hahn, trail segment adopter in the Mid-South section, says, "It's widespread, the most I have seen in my years on the trail."
Don led a group of six volunteers who worked a total of 20 hours scraping mud and digging out culverts on May 2. The next day, Paul Morgan led a crew that did the same thing. Other volunteers up and down the trail joined the fight in their segments.
