Charity & Volunteer Events
Date: Tuesday, August 13, 2019 09:00 AM

Venue: Panthertown Valley

Would you like to go hiking in Panthertown this summer and learn more about the work that we do to keep the trails maintained and the valley protected?

We have an upcoming volunteer opportunity in Panthertown Valley with Friends of Panthertown Valley on Tuesday, August 13, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. with plenty of time to continue exploring in the afternoon.

Everyone is welcome! No RSVP is necessary, but it is appreciated. No previous trail work experience is necessary, just a desire to help out on the trails. We expect to hike about five miles round-trip on easy-to-moderate trails while doing trail corridor clearing and some tread/drain work.

Weather permitting, volunteers should meet at the Cold Mountain Gap trailhead (eastern entrance to Panthertown) at the end of Cold Mountain Road in Lake Toxaway at 9:00 a.m. to get signed in. Contact us for directions.

Trail maintenance tools, safety gear (hard hat, gloves, safety glasses), and a safety orientation are provided by Friends of Panthertown staff. Volunteers should wear sturdy closed-toe shoes or boots and long pants. Bring water, snacks, and a lunch to enjoy on the trail.
