This work isn’t easy. But it sure is rewarding.
Thanks to incredible volunteers who came out to this year’s (Not) Work Week, we were able to get a ton of work done on the connecting trail from Butcher’s Branch- Climbing Access to White Wall! From Saturday, May 14th to Saturday, May 21st over 1,000 volunteer hours were put in towards making rock steps, retaining walls, and other sustainable trail infrastructure to help provide safe climbing access.
You can now easily connect from Butcher’s Branch- Climbing Access Trail to White Wall and all the way to The Hole without worrying about rolling your ankle on the wobbly pile of rocks that you used to have to traverse! This route provides safe access to these wonderful climbing areas using technical rock features which will last for generations to come.
Check out some pictures of the work done, and get a sense to how much fun these crews had out there over the week!
