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.

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.
