Remote Overnight Crew on the A.T near Asheville, NC
Join the Carolina Mountain Club (CMC) as part of the Remote Overnight Crew (ROC) on September 21st and 22nd on the Appalachian Trail as we renovate a more remote section of the A.T. This section is near the Big Bald Mountain, which will be our base for operations. The Carolina Mountain Club Trail Maintenance Crew members and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) are partnering to offer a unique opportunity to spend the weekend assisting in the rehabilitation of the AT as it traverses Big Bald Mountain in the Cherokee and Pisgah National Forests.
Individuals, groups, and families are welcome to sign up (on a first come basis) and be partnered with veteran Trail Maintainers to spend the day having a hands on experience working to rehabilitate the trail in a sustainable condition for generations to come. No experience necessary! You will be matched with a skilled maintainer according to your interests and abilities. You will spend the weekend on a beautiful section of trail while working on the fabled A.T. The work group will be limited to about 30 participants.
Youth of all ages are welcome, but must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. CMC will provide safety instructions, supervision, training, and tools for the tasks you are assigned.
