The Piedmont Appalachian Trail Hikers (PATH) are celebrating their 57th year of maintaining their designated section of the Appalachian Trail in southwest Virginia!

Maintaining the Appalachian Trail by clearing fallen trees, cutting back overgrown vegetation from the sides of the Trail, and repainting trail markers, also known as blazes, keeps the Appalachian Trail alive. This is all done by volunteers!

Join the Piedmont Appalachian Trail Hikers (PATH) on the weekend of July 16 to help perform essential maintenance on the Appalachian Trail. Tools and training will be provided.

Please be sure to wear long pants and sturdy boots. Bring plenty of water and food for the weekend, sunscreen, bug spray, as well as a rain jacket and work gloves if you have them. Camping is available for event participants. Participants are to also supply their own camping gear including but not limited to; backpack, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, tent/hammock, and food.
