Grayson Highlands State Park – Volunteer Vacations 2021

June 20 - June 26

Event Navigation

Volunteers will spend most of the week re-routeing the Cabin Creek trail out of a drainage area. The new section is approximately 0.21 miles in length and will have to be laid by hand. If we are able to complete that section prior to weeks end, we will work on some drainage issues closer to the creek on the same trail as well as some small projects on another trail closer to the campground.
