Make your plans now! We may have been limited to what we could do during the last year, no one told erosion it had to stop because there was a virus and we are finding more trails created by those that think they can go wherever they want. That along with the greater number of people going outside once the park did open has resulted a lot of opportunities for trail maintenance.

There are 20+ miles of trails that had 2,356,401 visitors in 2020 even with the park closed for about 8 weeks due to the pandemic. If you have not taken part in this event before you will be able to look back at what we have accomplished knowing you have contributed the trails at KMNBP better for those hiking them.


We will be working on Pigeon Hill and Little Kennesaw performing needed maintenance to minimize water flow on the trail and rebuilding rock steps where needed. Both pictures were taken in late May of these issues.


You will be working with and following the instructions of a Kennesaw Mountian Trail Club Crew Leader(s) to which you will be assigned. We will work in a group if possible. We will learn the procedures of how to make our trails better for today & for the future. 

Required Items to Bring:

Work cloths and comfortable closed toe shoes


Work Gloves, bring your own in the past they have been provided. Due to Covid we may not be able to issue them at this time.

Bring Water and snacks.
