For this summer work trip, we will backpack mulch out to the Double Springs shelter storage bins and then stop by Mt Collins on the way back out Clingmans Dome Rd. to take some mulch in there. Mulch is pre-bagged in 20lb. bags (you're only expected to carry one!) and we have extra backpacking-style backpacks if needed. Although it doesn't sound very glamorous to carry mulch, it is a crucial part of backcountry waste management! Experienced and non-experienced mulch mules welcome! Hike to Double Springs 6 miles RT, to Mt Collins 1.5 miles RT. Meet at Clingmans Dome parking lot at 8am, or if you'd like to carpool, meet at Sugarlands Visitor Center at 7:15 am. Pre-register at smhclub.org, so I know how much mulch to bring.
