Note added by Charlie on Thu Aug 10th: We definitely could use a few more AOC "hiker-volunteers," so if you're free this Saturday please join us. The "spot" weather forecast for the Cohuttas looks good! Temperatures in the comfortable 70s all day, with only about a 30% chance of light showers in the AM rising to about 60% by midafternoon.
Looking for an excellent way to "give back" to the beautiful trails and scenic areas that we AOC hikers and backpackers so often take for granted? Please join us on Sat Aug 12th - no special skills required!
Details of this Aug 12th Volunteer Project from BMTA.org Website: Please join us on Saturday, August 12 as we work section 10 in the Cohutta Wilderness. This will be a joint BMTA event with Team Conasauga, Back Country Horsemen and the U.S. Forest Service. We need a great showing from volunteers, so please put this on your calendar. Plan for the day: Lopping, trimming and sling blade work, esp. to clear overgrown brush from recent regular rains.
