Sixteen volunteers came out for the Friends of Pisgah work day on Saturday, April 21st to sweep the many miles of trails that are part of the 10k and 5k Run in the Park races that are scheduled for May 26th. The folks assembled in crews and spent a long six hours clearing forest debris, cutting away blowdowns, opening drainage ditches and culverts to improve water flow off the trails, and generally sprucing things up. So the going is fine in much of the northern segment of Pisgah Park.

Two days later, a big log was jimmied out of the Kilburn Road, the newly refurbished Town Forest Trail was cleared of debris, and the old Davis Hill Trail got a manicure, too.

Volunteers make it happen in Pisgah!
