Hiking with Tools! is an introductory opportunity for giving back to the Appalachian Trail by helping out with routine maintenance.   All tools will be furnished, and no prior experience required; we’ll provide hands-on training!  Please note that this Saturday is the second one in October Instead of the traditional third to arrange for club leadership.  The plan is to gather at Indian Grave Gap trailhead at 9 am (since 7:34 am sunrise) to work south primarily by using a battery-powered hedge trimmer, swing blades, and loppers to cut the uphill growth of rhododendrons from pushing hikers to the lower side of the path.  This section is not terribly bad close to the highway, but the assigned maintainer is taking care of an ill spouse, so the club is covering.  We’ll work as far and long as the group chooses, likely just after lunch, and then return to the parking area.  Please text/call me by Thursday 10/8 evening so sufficient tools can be obtained – and if you have any questions.


Bookings are closed for this event.
