Upcoming Trail Work Days in Panthertown


Thursday, January 7 (pruning)

Saturday, January 16 CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER

1/15/21 5pm update from Krista Robb, Trail Stewardship Coordinator: Hello trail friends. After waiting until this afternoon to have the most up to date forecast for tomorrow, I have decided to cancel the workday for everyone’s safety and comfort. 

The weather models are forecasting Saturday’s high temp at Salt Rock Gap trail head at 4,100ft will be around 25 degrees. Winds up to 20mph will also come into play and bring temps down to a frigid 15 degrees. Folks, I know you’re excited about volunteering to support Panthertown trails. Thank you all for signing up and for your willingness to help! I hope you will join us again soon. The next upcoming workdays will be next Sat, Jan 23, and Jan 28. Fingers and toes crossed for workable weather!

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 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.

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.
