Sherando: Appalachian Trail Maintenance Complete

And we’re back!  On Saturday we got up and headed out to the trail where we completed the required maintenance.  The trail really gets overgrown in areas and the meadow is no different.  There were some places where hikers had less than a foot of clearance which is impossible to walk down and not touch the briars, poison ivy, and other plant life that could be harmful.  We widened that to six feet, or more, to allow safe passage.

After the work was complete we returned to the cabin, took showers, and then headed over to Waynesboro to make stops at the bakery and the cheese shop.  Those two places are quickly becoming my favorite places to shop.

Games capped off the day and we retired to bed a bit early exhausted from the day’s adventures.

Sunday started not too early.  We were on the road by 10AM, headed home to complete tasks that needed to be done before the start to a new work week.  All-in-all this was a fun trip although too short.  We should definitely plan a return trip before the snow comes in.

Sherando: Appalachian Trail Maintenance

24 September 2010
by Eric

We are in Sherando, Virginia for the weekend helping with some maintenance tasks on the Appalachian Trail.  We came up in the Spring and helped with the post-winter tasks and had a lot of fun doing it.  We camped out last time but this time we are staying in one of several cabins for rent.  We didn’t arrive until around 9P so not much to report so far.  Tomorrow should start the fun!
