AMERICAN HIKING SOCIETY’S NATIONAL TRAILS DAY ®
ANNUAL APPALACHIAN TRAIL WORK DAY
Saturday, June 6, 2015
Come celebrate the 22nd anniversary of National Trails Day (19th year locally) in the Smokies on the Appalachian Trail. This fun workday only comes around once a year, so get ready to sign up.
Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Regional Office of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club are pleased to coordinate another Annual Appalachian Trail Work Day on National Trails Day. We invite you to participate in helping us take care of the A.T. in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The A.T. Maintainers Committee of the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy are responsible for maintaining the A.T. and its facilities in Great Smoky Mountains National Park on a continuing basis. With your help on National Trails Day important trail maintenance projects are completed that otherwise would not be accomplished; these improvements make the Appalachian Trail in the Smokies safer and more enjoyable for the thousands of hikers who use the trail each year.
Registration details- $20 postmarked by May 15th; $25 after May 15th
Registering early helps the Crew Assignment Committee get workers placed in work groups and increases your chance of being assigned to your hike/work preference. Workers will receive a commemorative t-shirt and a picnic at day’s end. See the registration form for details!
Closing picnic will be at Metcalf Bottoms Picnic Area.
