Dolly Sods Wilderness, Monongahela National Forest
July 21 - July 27
Dolly Sods Wilderness is a gem of the Monongahela National Forest. Although we do not have accurate visitation estimates, it can be confidently said that Dolly Sods is one of the most visited Wilderness areas in the Eastern United States. For all the media attention these trails get, they do not receive as much support for maintenance. This project helps to remedy that by consisting of multiple small projects all geared toward making the trails more sustainable. Work may include installing drainage features, consolidating user-created trails, and brushing overgrown trails. Participants are sure to learn or improve a diversity of skills while seeing an equal diversity of ecosystems this Wilderness is famous for!
