STA 2018 Trail Improvements

$4,000 goal

Campaign created 24 days ago
Bridges across streams, staircase down steep hillsides are crucial for accessing the Sheltowee Trace NRT.  In 2018, the STA is taking on its most ambitious schedule of construction projects in the Big South Fork and the Daniel Boone National Forest.  

Big South Fork - Our priority project is replacing the downed bridge at Falls Branch.  This bridge enables not only thruhiker access to the Angel Falls area but is a crucial crossing for the thousands of dayhikers who part at Leatherwood Trail Head and hike over to Angel Falls Overlook.  From May to July the STA will be working to pack out the old bridge and pack in and build the new bridge.  The estimated cost of construction materials is $4,000.00.

Daniel Boone National Forest - Our priority project is replacing the platform stairs at Mouth of the Laurel with a concrete steps reducing the need to replace the steps ever 5 to 8 years.  Estimated cost of this project is $1,000.00.   In addition, if time and resources are available, the STA would like to add an additional staircase north of Van Hook Falls to facility safer passage through this area.  The cost is estimated at $500.00.  

Your tax deductible donations here to the Gary Rue Access and Development Fund will go toward these vital improvements to the Trace.
