The Cumberland Trail Conference (CTC) will be hosting a volunteer trail construction event in the trail’s New River Segment from June 10-20.
This segment is in the North Cumberland WMA located in Scott County, Tennessee. This county is located to the northwest of Knoxville. The CTC has a goal of completing the New River segment by June of 2012.
This will be a tent camping outing and volunteers will need to supply their own camping gear. The CTC will have a base camp with a kitchen tent and cook stoves, food and water will be provided but volunteers will be asked to help prepare the meals and with kitchen clean-up. Camping will be at the base camp and volunteers will be leaving from the base camp and walking to the trail construction area. A work day will be from 8am to 4:30pm with a lunch. Volunteers can sign-up for a day or better yet, multiple days. It will be possible to drive vehicles to the base camp location. For those who want to RV or trailer camp, a commercial campground within 7 miles of the trail construction site is available. Please visit www.riversidecampsite.com. The CTC will not be responsible for the camp fee and meals will be at the CTC base camp.
