The weather is cool, leaves are falling – time to grab the saws and hit the trails for some invigorating trail maintenance!  Team up with other Wilderness lovers for a day on trails 203 and 207, where we will be brushing out vegetation and removing blockages and obstructions.  Crosscutters are needed on both trails.

All tools and safety equipment are provided.  However, if you have a hardhat,  hand pruners or loppers you are especially fond of, bring them.

Bring a backpack with lunch, snacks, drinking water, work gloves.

Dress for the weather, in layers.  Long sleeves, long pants, sturdy boots or shoes are recommended.   Sharp tools in motion dictate that we dress protectively.

On trail 207, be prepared to hike at least 4.5  miles roundtrip carrying tools and backpack.   The hike into  203 is shorter and the task specifically for crosscutters and support.

Meet at the Wild South office within the Warrior Mountains Trading Company (map link above) at 8:30.  Or make arrangements to meet us at the Borden Creek Trailhead or Gum Pond trailhead if  that’s more convenient.

Meet at the Wild South office within the Warrior Mountains Trading Company at 11312 AL Hwy. 33, Moulton, AL (click on map link above) at 8:30 a.m.

Wild South’s Helping Hands Volunteer Program is made possible through the generous support of our individual donors, a grant from The National Forest Foundation, a grant from the Walker Area Community Foundation, and a grant from Legacy.
