Panthertown Valley Trail Work & Hike

Charity & Volunteer Events
Date: Saturday, September 19, 2020 09:00 AM

Venue: Panthertown Valley

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?

Friends of Panthertown hosts public trail work days in Panthertown Valley on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.with plenty of time to continue Exploring Panthertown during the afternoon.

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

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.

To RSVP, or for more info, please send an e-mail to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Weather permitting, volunteers should meet at the Salt Rock Gap trailhead (western entrance to Panthertown) at the end of Breedlove Road in Glenville/Cashiers at 9:00 a.m. to get signed in. Contact us for directions.

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