Volunteers in Panthertown

Volunteers Welcome

Would you like to go hiking in Panthertown and learn about the conservation work that we do to keep the trails maintained and the valley protected? You’ll get a guided tour of part of the valley and meet others who also love Panthertown. It’s a fun way to give back to this special place. Contact us with any questions you have, or to sign-up for a work day.

Everyone is welcome! No previous trail work experience is necessary, just a desire to help out on the trails. We usually hike around five miles round-trip on easy to moderate trails while doing trail corridor clearing, pruning, and some tread and drain work. It’s a great way to meet others who also appreciate Panthertown Valley.

If you have a group or organization that would like to work on trails as a service project or to Adopt-A-Trail, please give us a call at (828) 269-HIKE (4453) or send an e-mail, we can arrange a special day in Panthertown for your group.
