NEWS ALERT!!!!! EVENTS ADDED TO JUNE 3rd TRAIL DAYS!!!!
Volunteers Needed for National Trail Days Projects
June 3 - the first Saturday in June is National Trail Days. The STA will host several opportunities for you to volunteer and participate. Trail maintenance is the primary emphasis this year.
The Trace has three shelters, Bark Camp Creek, Starr, and Cotton Patch. As more and more backpackers are visiting the Trace each year it is important that we work with our partners to maintain these structures and areas.
Volunteers will meet at 9 am at designated areas and hike into the shelter. Round trips to each shelter is less than 6 miles. Work to be completed includes, cleaning up the trash around the shelters, cleaning out the fire rings and resetting the rings, and clearing the brush and weeds around each shelter.
Tools will be provided. Volunteers should dress for the weather and conditions. More details on the way.
Other hikes and activities will be announced soon.
To volunteer, text "Volunteer for Trail Days" to 606.386.3636. Leave your name please.

HIKING ALERT - Conditions are about back to normal. In the Rock Creek area please use caution. We anticipate more rain between May 4 and 6 that may cause temporary high water. Use caution.
