Hungry Mother State Park

September 23 - September 29

Trip Navigation

As trails within Hungry Mother State Park see increased usage, it’s crucial to ensure trails are sustainable to meet this increased demand. Volunteers will install rock armoring in areas that currently have drainage issues, adding knicks and rolling grade dips, clearing the corridor, out-slop and deberming the trail. Volunteers will also address areas of trail that need grooming by raking and removing small rocks, leaves, and leaf litter on the trail tread.

Meet the Crew Leader for this trip.

Area and Attractions

Long a family favorite known for beautiful woodlands and a placid 108-acre lake in the heart of the mountains, Hungry Mother State Park has a sandy beach, mountain vistas, and over 18 miles of trails traversing the park. The trails are typically natural surface trails approximately 4 feet wide. During the free day, volunteers can venture out on a 19 mile bike ride on the Historical Virginia Creeper Trail from Whitetop Mountain to Damascus, VA, canoe in Hungry Mother State Park, or hike at Grayson Highlands State Park to take in the spectacular mountain views, hike up Twin Pinnacles, and possibly see the wild ponies!

Accommodations Description

Volunteers will stay in a fully-furnished historical bunkhouse that includes a furnished kitchen and two bathrooms. The kitchen is furnished with the basic cooking items. The number of twin beds varies in each room, ranging from three to four beds per room. Linens will be provided. Volunteers should bring their own personal gear.
