    The Roanoke AT club manages this section, the head trail maintainer is listed on the page with his email address.

    Check the RATC newsletter page for winter 09, it's been replaced with a new metal roof along with some other local work.

    Bland to 311 is very nice. Are you going to try to include Burkes Garden?

    If I understand your post, you're starting at Bland and going nobo to 311 at Catawba. If you start at Bland, you will will miss hiking along the ridge of Burkes Garden along the AT, which is a very interesting geological place just south of Bland.

    COol, keep on knocking out your sections. When you get to 311, it's only a short walk North on the AT to visit Mcafee's Knob.
