The trail crew will be working on the new section of Long Path that begins near Phoenicia, continues over Romer Mountain, Mount Pleasant and Cross Mountain and then will connect with the Burroughs Range Trail. On this trip we will be working on the section that crosses Cross Mountain between Wittenburg and Mount Pleasant.
This is a week long work trip. We will be camping each night on the mountain. More details are available by contacting the leader.
Work will include clearing trees and vegetation, and tread construction such as raking, side-hilling, waterbars and stone steps.
Unable to volunteer to be on the Trail Crew for a week, but you are still interested in supporting our work? We still need your help! You can join our support crew to help move materials, tools and supplies for the basecamp throughout the week. For more information on and how to sign up with the support crew, information is available here. The support crew will be organizing a number of hikes to the basecamp area throughout the week that the Trail Crew is working on Romer Mountain.
Make sure you get a chance to get involved with this first of its kind project for the Trail Conference, either through staying in the backcountry and working on the Long Path for a week or supporting our crews and backpacking supplies back and forth between basecamp and the trailheads.
