We will be meeting at the Bear Mountain Inn at 9am, then carpooling to Perkins Memorial Tower, and hiking down the in-progress reroute of the Appalachian Trail.  Trail Builder/Educator, Ama Koenigshof, and Bear Mountain Field Manager, Kevin Simpson, will be leading the tour with detailed explanations of techniques and methods used giving an introduction to traditional stonework as it applies to technical trail construction.  After the hike, stick around and get your hands in on the action by volunteering on the project.
