Raccoon Mountain Volunteer Day Report
The volunteers’ main focus was a section of the Laurel Point trail which, due to a minor seasonal spring, suffers from freeze-thaw issues. This section of trail suffered from some minor rutting during the last two years. The volunteers were able to reestablish a small ditch used to divert the seasons spring. The volunteers eliminated a few ruts that were preventing proper drainage and regraded the trail.
The trail volunteers also nicked out some low lying areas on the trail that were collecting water and armored a couple of other problems section of trail, by adding rock slabs to the trial bed.
Following the trial work day SORBA-Chattanooga provided a lunch of fried chicken, rolls, potato salad and chips.
We would like to thank all of the volunteers who help keep the Raccoon Mountain trails in the best conditionpossible.
