Join the Carolina Mountain Club (CMC) as part of the Remote Overnight Crew (ROC) on April 18 and 19 on the Appalachian Trail as we renovate a more remote section of the A.T. The Carolina Mountain Club Trail Maintenance Crew members and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) are partnering to offer a unique opportunity to spend the weekend assisting in the rehabilitation of the AT as it traverses north of Max Patch in the Cherokee and Pisgah National Forests. This section is between Max Patch and Lemon Gap near the Roaring Fork shelter, which may be our base for operations, TBD. Expect between a 0.5 and 1 mile hike in to the campsite.
Individuals, groups, and families are welcome to sign up (on a first come basis) and be partnered with veteran Trail Maintainers to spend the day having a hands on experience working to rehabilitate the trail in a sustainable condition for generations to come. No experience necessary! You will be matched with a skilled maintainer according to your interests and abilities. You will spend the weekend on a beautiful section of trail while working on the fabled A.T. The work group will be limited to about 30 participants.
What to bring: You will be spending the night camping so bring what you need to do that. We will not be sleeping in a shelter. Bring food for 2 lunches, dinner, and snacks. You will want to bring some water but there will be a water source to filter to get more. Wear sturdy closed toed shoes and long pants. Bring gloves and safety glasses if you have them. We can supply more as needed.
Pre-registration is required by signing up on the below link. Youth of all ages are welcome, but must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. CMC will provide safety instructions, supervision, training, and tools for the tasks you are assigned. In fact, we always have some children under 15 who attend and enjoy!
Please contact CMC AT Supervisor Paul Curtin at: firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or any questions you may have.
Travel Logistics: We will meet at the Home Depot west side Acton Circle off I-26 exit 44, where you will check in and sign a work waiver. All minors must be accompanied by an adult who will sign a waiver for them. After a short safety briefing, introductions, and tool pickup we will group up for car pools to head to the site. We will need some of the volunteers to drive groups to our work site. The parking lot in front of the building is a safe place to leave your car for the weekend.
It takes about an hour to travel to the site, which is off Max Patch road near Max Patch. The last 10 miles is a gravel road which is in good condition and accessible by personal vehicles.
