Do you enjoy Panthertown Trails? We need your help! We are looking for some groups that may be interested in helping maintain one of the many awesome trails in Panthertown! All training, equipment, and tools are provided, while following USFS guidelines and risk management. We welcome clubs, friend and family groups, businesses, and others!

A fun way to connect with each other and help keep Panthertown trails in good condition. More info to sign up for this valuable program is coming soon!

Meet our newest Intern:
We welcome Colt Ferguson, a Parks and Recreation Management student from Western Carolina University.

As no stranger to Panthertown, his group class project last semester hosted a successful fall Cherokee Storytelling hike in Panthertown, and his volunteer efforts with the Polaski trail tool do not go unnoticed!We are glad to have Colt join us on the trails and in the field for the next few months, before he graduates this semester from WCU, to help work on our Adopt-A-Trail program rolling out soon. And, for the dog lovers out there, Colt has the cutest Bassett Hound. Welcome, Colt!
