Rocky Top Trail Crew- Overnight Trail Work
- Instructor Appalachian Trail Conservancy
The 70 miles of the Appalachian Trail through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park cross the Trail's highest point and traverse the most diverse ecosystem and largest roadless area along the Trail. Crew members carry most everything they need, but do receive some support from equestrian partners to help in carrying tools and some food up the mountain. However, crew volunteers should expect to carry between 40-55 lbs on their backs and may also need to hand-carry some tools. Trip includes lodging, meals, expert leadership and the necessary equipment and tools to complete our projects. No previous volunteer experience is necessary...just the desire to pitch in and help conserve these national treasures! Check out this month's Trail Work Trip in the notes below.
