A volunteer work day to work on campsites for the French Broad River Paddle Trail will take place from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Jan. 13 in Transylvania County.
The French Broad River Paddle Trail will be a world-class paddle trail for canoes and kayaks on more than 140 miles of the French Broad River, with spots to pull off and camp while paddling the trails from Rosman, N.C., to Newport, Tenn. It is expected to open in summer 2012.
Additional work days are planned for Jan. 27, Feb. 10, and Feb. 24. The trail is being constructed by the French Broad Riverkeeper and the WNC Alliance.
