Workday gives nearly 400 hours of love to Sam Knob
With 54 volunteers turning out for the Carolina Mountain Club’s Quarterly Crew Day at Sam Knob last month, the group was able to check a lot of items off its to do list.
On Saturday, Aug. 19, volunteers built or added to eight rock staircases, restored more than 400 yards of trail, built two large cribbing walls to support the trail over steep terrain, weed-whacked the entire trail and added a large water diversion that will prevent these improvements from being washed away. In total, volunteers contributed 378 hours, valued at $11,340.
The year’s final Quarterly Crew Day is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 14, also at Sam Knob. Learn more at cmc100th.org.
