Volunteers needed Tuesday, April 9 to help build new trail at Wilderness Falls

Friends of Panthertown volunteers are needed this coming Tuesday, April 9 to help us build a new section of trail at Wilderness Falls. We hope you will join us to help!

Wilderness Falls

Re-routing a .25 mile section of the Wilderness Falls Trail will provide for safer access to this very popular waterfall.

Volunteers should meet at the Salt Rock Gap trailhead at the end of Breedlove Road in Cashiers, NC at 9:30AM. We will be working on re-routing the middle section of the popular Wilderness Falls Trail to make for easier and safer access to the waterfall below. Trail tools and instructions will be provided and new volunteers are always welcome. There will be spring wildflowers beginning bloom and a great opportunity to enjoy Panthertown with other friends! We expect to hike less than 3 miles on easy to moderate trails and be done by 3PM. Trail volunteers are asked to pack a lunch, bring plenty of water, wear good shoes, and bring a pair of work gloves and pruners if you have them (we’ll also have some to loan out).
