Appalachian Trail volunteers needed

Written by 

out trailcrewLearn the basics of trail construction and environmental stewardships by volunteering with an Appalachian Trail Conservancy trail crew.

Project locations range from Maine to Georgia and everywhere in-between, and no experience is necessary. Work lasts from April through October, with ATC providing food, tools and equipment. Volunteers will help relocate and reconstruct trails, build shelters and construct bridges along the Appalachian Trail. 

Locally, the Smokies Wilderness Elite Appalachian Trail Crew (S.W.E.A.T.) covers the highest elevations in the backcountry of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Six-day sessions run June 7 through August 26. The Rocky Top Trail Crew works the Smokies, too, ranging between Fontana Dam and Davenport Gap. Those sessions run Aug. 30 to Oct. 25.
