Long Distance Trails Crew - Appalachian Trail Worktrip

 Registration is closed for this event

Join the Long Distance Trails Crew and help build and restore the Appalachian Trail in Harriman State Park.


These volunteer lead worktrips are open to everyone: experienced trail builders seeking to develop their skills, as well as people with no experience looking to try something new and give back to the trails they enjoy.

The crew works Friday, Saturday, Sunday every other week. Details for each worktrip will be posted on a rolling basis. Register here to be included on the LDTC Mailing List and receive details on upcoming worktrips.

We meet at 8:30 am at the Lake Tiorati Circle Parking Lot in Harriman State Park. We are working on a short relocation of the Appalachian Trail on Surebridge Mountain.

This time, approximately 0.5 miles of new trail will be built at the eastern end.  Part of this relocation will be a section of sloping trail that needs to be cut and raked through the woods and brush.   We are building steps where the trail exists now, along with stone cribbing across the bowl section.  We have multiple worksites and have set two high-lines, so we can use all your help.  Please come out and join us, you’ll be glad you did.

  • Wear sturdy boots or shoes, long pants and bring your work gloves.
  • Bring your lunch and plenty of water.
  • Safety glasses and hard hats are required. If you do not have your own, they will be provided and it is required that they be worn. 
  • Training is hands-on. No experience required.
  • The day will end at approximately 3 pm.
