Dolly Sods Wilderness, Monongahela Nat’l Forest, WV (2012)

For the second straight year, Wilderness Volunteers spent a week clearing trails in West Virginia’s Monongahela National Forest – this time in the scenic Dolly Sods Wilderness.  The trip was a success, as we maintained several miles of trail and rehabilitated half-a-dozen campsites (amidst glorious fall foliage!). Needless to say, the US Forest Service is eager to see us return in 2013.

And so are our volunteers, especially this one, who has found inspiration in WV service projects to get involved with trail maintenance in his local community.  Visit to read more and learn what it’s like to spend a week “Giving Something Back” with Wilderness Volunteers.

And stay tuned for a list of WV’s 2013 Summer and Fall projects, which will be announced in early December!
