Trail Workday Update

  • Hickory Ridge Trail, 5/18/2019
  • Trail: Hickory Ridge Trail

    volunteerAfter two weekends of rainouts, the CDTV finally got a break in the weather and hit the Hickory Ridge Trail on May 18, 2019. This trail has really been hit hard with blowdowns over the last year. This Saturday was warm and gorgeous for the long, stead climb up East Cowpen to Hickory Ridge. Volunteers with hand saws took care of several smaller trees and limbs, and two crosscut saws were utilized to tackle four larger trees. Volunteers enjoyed all of the creek crossings on the Rice Camp Trail on the way back out to the trailhead. Thanks to volunteers Leslie and Adam Betterton, Robert Edmondson, Eric Pierce, Wanda Brown, and David Tanner, along with Ranger Kevin Vasalinda, for all the hard work along this trail.

    volunteerThis spring, several volunteers have taken several weekday trips into the wilderness to continue the blowdown work on multiple trails. We’ve made tremendous progress on the blowdowns with this addition of weekday trips. Our apologies for not having a complete listing of all volunteers who have contributed on the weekday trips; however, we wanted to include an additional announcement and message of thanks to the volunteers who have participated in these additional workdays.

    volunteerMany thanks to all our volunteers who worked hard to maintain a beautiful trail. We hope to see many of you on another workday in the near future. For more information on future workdays, stay tuned through our social website or Meetup.
