This work trip will support the annual A.T. Konnarock Trail Crew in the National Forest. Each year, volunteers from across the country sign up for this ATC Sponsored summer trail crew for a week at a time, over a 2-week period. The crew will be building a new trail relocation adjacent to the Fontana Marina. Participants will need to wear sturdy footwear, bring work gloves, lunch, snacks, and plenty of water.

Meeting times and locations: Maryville Walmart at 2410 US-411 S at 7:30 am or at the Fontana Marina parking lot near 40 Fontana Dam Rd, Fontana Dam, NC 28733 at 9:00am. Roundtrip travel is approximately 110 miles. Also note that the crew will be on location for several days, the weeks of June 24-30 and July 8-14, and will base camp in the area. Volunteers that participate for 3 or more days on the project will receive an ATC Trails Crew T-Shirt. Club members that want to overnight in the area can utilize the Fontana Hilton Shelter, near the TVA picnic area.

Leaders: Randy Bullock and Franklin LaFond
Leader contact information is included under Additional Information in the email you receive after registration.
