This work trip will concentrate on the east end of the Smokies beginning at Davenport Gap and working as far as the Mt. Cammerer Fire Tower side trail. We will work on cleaning out water drainages, pruning back encroaching vegetation, and install/repair of a few log steps as time allows. Some tread repair and removal of downed trees may also be required. Several work groups that are willing to hike different distances up to 5 miles in to the far end of the section would be good.
We will meet at the Cracker Barrel (1510 Cracker Barrel Ln, Knoxville TN 37914) at 8:00 am or at the Davenport Gap trailhead at (TN 32 / NC284, I-40 Exit 451 Waterville NC) at 9:00 am. Parking at this location is limited, so carpooling is strongly encouraged.
Bring sturdy footwear, gloves, lunch, snacks, plenty of water, and weather appropriate attire. Pre-registration with the leaders is required.
Leaders: Tim Bigelow and Franklin LaFond
