It didn’t work out in 2021, so we’re trying again! Join this service project and help maintain backcountry trails in this unique National Park.
Service Project Details
Our service project will be to help maintain either Sal Hollow or Dry Prong backcountry trails. Both trails are heavily used equestrian trails that are in need of major maintenance. Volunteers will likely begin working from the campground trailhead the first day and then hike further each day as more work is completed. Volunteers should expect to hike up to 5 miles each day.
Project Leaders: Steve Breitbach and Jerry Lehman
