NCAMN Trail Patrol
January 25 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
We are watching the weather, possibly monitoring weather radar Wednesday night.
Trail Maintenance on the Buffalo River Trail. The National Park Service asked NCAMN to clear 13 miles of BRT, to ready the trail for the upcoming Buffalo River Biathlon and Trail Marathon events. The BRT is challenging and beautiful. We will clear three sections on different Thursdays. North section is Dillards Ferry to Spring Creek Road, 6.1 miles linear. Middle section is Spring Creek Rd to South Maumee Road, 5.3 miles linear. South section is 2 miles from So. Maumee Rd to Little Rocky Creek. We finished the middle section January 4, one down, two to go!
We expect to work 9 AM to 1 or 2 PM, eat a hearty breakfast.
