The club’s volunteers maintain 93 miles of the Appalachian Trail in the Appalachian District of Pisgah National Forest. Each week, volunteers go out to check on a section of trail and perform a variety of tasks from fallen tree removal with chainsaws and branch trimming to brush clearing in the summertime. The volunteers also undertake larger projects such as building trail steps and installing hanging cables to keep campers’ food stores out of the reach of bears.
