Tryon Trail Work

Tonight I attended the Tryon Park Wednesday night trail work meeting.

We spend about an hour and a half walking the trails and breaking down berms on the low side of trails, where water tends to collect. The water creates mud, and when hikers and bikers walk through it, berms are inevitably created on the low side of the trail. More water can then collect and the problem grows.

We broke down the berms and creating a channel or knick for the water to flow out.

It was good to get out after being sick for a while. Now if it will just stop raining!
