Join in on the first work trip of 2024 as we meet at the Yellow Creek Gap AT crossing in the Nantahala National Forest. This hike will focus on a few areas North of Cable Gap Shelter using mattocks, rakes and shovels to reclaim short sections of trail corridor using cribbing where needed. The overall hike distance is less than 8 miles out and back over moderate terrain. The trailhead at Yellow Creek adjacent to the AT has lots of parking and the area generally has cell coverage. Bring gloves, eye protection and any PPE you find useful along with lunch and water. From NC 28 turn onto Upper Tuskeegee Road and drive approximately 2.8 miles. From NC 129 (Topoco Road) turn onto Yellow Creek Road and drive 8.9 miles. Meet at Yellow Creek trailhead at 10:00 a.m. For more information, call trip leader.
