Join CMC Quarterly Trail Maintenance Crew in celebrating National Trails Day on Max Patch on June 1st!
By Paul Curtin
Join us on June 1st - the 51st Anniversary of the National Trails Day Act - on MAX PATCH, one of the iconic jewels of the Appalachian Trail, and a highlight of all trails in Western North Carolina. The Carolina Mountain Club Trail Maintenance Crew members, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, the Pisgah National Forest Appalachian Ranger District, REI, and Farm to Feet are partnering to offer a unique opportunity to spend the day assisting in the rehabilitation of the A.T. as it traverses Max Patch Bald in the Pisgah National Forest. Last year's event was a great success with nearly 100 volunteers and we expect no less this year. Come see the work done since last year, including a 3-panel kiosk, locust fencing, steps, and tread work. Come this year to contribute more.
