Trail build day on the Cumberland Trail!
Cumberland Trail Conference
Sat, May 20 6:00 am
It's the Big Dig 2017! The Cumberland Trail Conference (CTC) is looking for volunteers to work on the trail near Crab Orchard TN (one of the closest CT sections to Nashville) The Big Dig is from May 3-June 10th and I plan to go Sat morning May 20 early and work all day, be home in the early evening. The site is just off I-40 near Crab Orchard. We'll need to meet and leave very early Sat morning. (Might also be able to arrange heading over Friday night - the CTC provides accomodations if you want to do this.) Please RSVP here on Meetup - I will arrange with the CTC for the group. Food, lodging, and tools are provided. Workdays are 8:00-3:00 normally Wed-Sat, but for our group of "weekend warriors!" we'll just head over for one day. Bring gloves, bug spray, and long pants.(poison ivy!) Nashville Backpackers have worked on the Cumberland Trail before and can tell you it's a very rewarding time of sweat and camaraderie that you'll remember for a long, long time. This is a great opportunity to give back to the trails that we sometimes take for granted.
