Panthertown calling volunteers

Written by 

Volunteers are needed to lend a hand this Saturday, August 25, for the trails of Panthertown Valley, a popular and scenic area of the Nantahala National Forest near Cashiers.

Friends of Panthertown is sponsoring the workday to prune back overgrowth encroaching on trails. The work days are a great way to give back while enjoying our national public lands. Volunteers will enjoy commraderis with other outdoors enthusiasts and do a little hiking in conjunction with the work.

Panthertown Valle is a 6,200-acre recreation prized for its waterfalls, granite domes, hiking and mountain biking trails.

No experience is necessary. Hand tools and instruction are provided. Meet at the Salt Rock Gap trail-head at 9:30 a.m. and finish up by 2:30 p.m. 828.269.4453 or visit www.panthertown.org.

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
