ATC's annual Konnarock Crew is coming to the Nantahala National Forest from May 10th—16th. This crew is made up of volunteers from across the country and often includes members of other trail associations. This annual crew is utilized to build treadway structures, construct new trail segments, and perform extensive trail rehab. This is a great opportunity to learn or improve maintenance skills from trained ATC crew leaders and help improve this section of trail.

This year’s project is a 1.5-mile-long rehab project, south of Yellow Creek Gap. The hike to the worksite is moderate. The crew will start at 8:30 each morning from the Yellow Creek trailhead. You can car camp with the crew behind the Forest Service gate for any number of nights if you would like. Volunteers that participate with the crew for 3 or more days receive a commemorative Konnarock T-Shirt.

Participants will need to wear sturdy footwear and bring work gloves, lunch, snacks, and plenty of water. If you have a hardhat, shin guards, and/or safety glasses, please bring those as well. For more details, contact Franklin LaFond or Randy Bullock.

Leader contact information is included under Additional Information in the email you receive after registration.
