Special Project on Trail 206 in Sipsey Wilderness

Bankhead National Forest

Join Wild Alabama volunteers for an opportunity to work on the repair and restoration of many Sipsey Wilderness trails! Through our Legacy Trails grant, we were able to utilize new tools and professional trail builders to closely analyze and diagnose the erosion issues on over 20 miles of our beautiful Sipsey Wilderness trails. Now that we know what needs to be done, we are into phase two.... the action! If you like hiking with trail maintenance, then this is perfect for you. You will get credit for volunteer hours of service, while doing something in nature with others who are participating for similar reasons. 
The focus for Kim's January work days will be to build natural steps on a tributary on trail 206 near the Auburn Falls area. One day may be scouting for downed cedar and cutting them into 4-6 foot lengths and staging them near the creek crossing. Another day may be installing them or filling in dirt. 

For all of our work days, please dress for erratic and unpredictable weather. It is Alabama! Bring a backpack that can carry your lunch, water and possibly a few hand tools. 

Kim Waites is your event leader and can be contacted by email at [email protected]
