On Sept 13th, Oct 4th & 25th, the TEHCC will be hosting trail maintenance relocation projects. College students will be attendance at these events, but hikers & other volunteers are welcome with prior notice. Previous experience such as Hardcore or Konnarock will be welcomed.

Sept 13th & Oct 25th - The TEHCC will be continuing to dig new trail to relocate the AT on the Grassy Ridge climb; in between Stan Murray Shelter and Grassy Ridge Trail split. This project will require a long walk in&out. So bring plenty of water & food to last through out the day. Sunscreen will be advisable as well. This relocation will help keep the trail on Grassy Ridge on a better grade and help prevent erosion. There will probably be several meeting spots for this event. So please RSVP.

Oct 4th - The TEHCC will be starting a new trail relocation project at the Damascus trailhead. This relocation will help keep the climb up to the Holston ridgeline to a better grade and long-lasting condition.

As always, bring work gloves, appropriate clothing for digging trail and cutting weeds (long pants & work shoes), and food&water.

These projects will proceed ran or shine. If rain is in forecast, bring rain gear.

If you would like to attend, please PM me ('Buliwyf') two weeks in advance. This will help in keeping tool counts and logistics in check. Details about meeting/entry spots will be provided later.
